6pm for 6:30 start

Sound studios can be exciting projects, and Dr Eddie Veale of Veale Associates has worked on studio design since the 1960s, including music studios, dubbing theatres, radio and TV studios.   He has an extensive track record which includes clients as varied as John Lennon, David Gilmour, Pete Townshend, Mike Oldfield, Trevor Horn, Roundhouse Studios, CBS Recording Studios, Virgin Radio, Island Records, Dolby Laboratories and Carlton TV.

In this presentation, Eddie will identify the various types of studio, review operational needs and the approach to design, examining the similarities and differences in studio design across different types and genres.

This meeting is a joint meeting bringing together AES South, IoA Southern Branch and the SMPTE Solent student chapter for the first time.   It is open to the general public – tickets can be booked via Eventbrite (link below).

About the presenter:

Eddie began his career working as an engineer at Advision, where he was invited to look after their studios and this gave him the opportunity to become one of the pioneers in studio design and the practice of acoustics for recording.

The work at Advision put Eddie in front of some of the industry’s leading artists, producers and studios. This led to the opportunity of designing one of the first professional home recording studio for John Lennon at his Tittenhurst Park home. Here John recorded one of the most famous albums ever, “Imagine”, which Eddie worked on too.

This was a turning point for Eddie and the recording industry; more artists wanted a home studio and professional studios started taking acoustics seriously. As a result Veale Associates began to grow.
