Temple Bar open day sounds good
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.
