The new Tileyard-based studio designed exclusively for ICMP students has just come online.

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, based in Kilburn, has spent the last few months working in partnership with the hugely successful King’s Cross media hub to create a “class-leading” recording facility and production room on the ever-growing Tileyard 'campus' (to date: 70 state-of-the-art music studios and 100 media-related businesses have a home there).

The finished ICMP studios are based around Logic Pro, Pro Tools and Ableton DAWs, and Novation and Focusrite controllers and interfaces, respectively. Monitoring is by ADAM and Yamaha.

There is a live room, isolation booths, iMac workstations for everyone and a spacious lecture classroom. The arrangement with Tileyard extends to students having access to mentoring programmes via Tileyard’s community of industry professionals and a range of other support and networking opportunities.

Paul Kirkham, chief executive at ICMP, says: “Our innovative and exclusive partnership with Tileyard provides our students with unique opportunities to study in and engage with an immersive industry environment, building their networks amongst some of the music industry’s biggest names. We are therefore delighted that this new facility is now available to our students, and it represents another step in our constantly developing and deepening relationship with Tileyard.”
