Tem­ple Bar open day sounds good

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS - lmur­phy@irish­times.com

Fancy hav­ing a nose around the stu­dios where artists such as Kanye West, Ri­hanna, Mor­ris­sey and Black Eyed Peas have recorded in re­cent years? The doors to Sun Stu­dios, Apollo Stu­dios, the Sound Train­ing Cen­tre and the But­ton Fac­tory – all in close prox­im­ity in Dublin’s Tem­ple Bar area and linked to the pres­ti­gious Grouse Lodge stu­dios in West­meath – are be­ing thrown open to all on May 17th for an open day.

Sound en­gi­neers who have worked with some of the big­gest names in the busi­ness will be on hand to an­swer ques­tions and host free work­shops for those who are in­ter­ested in the record­ing as­pect of the mu­sic busi­ness, while be­hind-the-scenes and ac­cess-all-ar­eas tours will run through­out the day. For those in­ter­ested in pur­su­ing full- and part-time cour­ses in mu­sic pro­duc­tion, sound en­gi­neer­ing, live sound, light­ing and stage man­age­ment, it’s an op­por­tu­nity to have a poke around and see what you’re let­ting yourself in for, but the plain ol’ cu­ri­ous are wel­come, too. Pre-reg­is­ter at sound­train­ing.com or just turn up on the day.

Ex­plore the stu­dio where Mor­ris­sey, left, recorded.
