Sound studios and recording facilities

The academy has state of the art facilities for recording and editing

The recording facilities are a part of the tonmeister section and they can be used by teachers and students in cooperation with a tonmeister student.

If you want to make a recording, contact Head of Tonmeister studies Jesper Andersen or a tonmeister student.

The tonmeister section is often looking for ensembles to play for recordings affiliated with the teaching of tonmeisters. Musicians who participate in such productions will have first priority when studio-hours for other productions are handed out – nice to know, since the studio often is very booked.
