Sonos Open New Permanent Space, Sonos Studio London

  • Posted 32 months Ago

Makers of high-end audio products Sonos has opened up a new permanent space in Shoreditch, called Sonos Studio London. Following in the footsteps of a similar space in LA which has been running for 3 years, the London studio consists of a concert space, listening rooms, work stations and a caf, and will host a range of events focussing on music, sound, creativity and tech. It aims to serve the community as a social, collaborative space devoted to unique experiences of music, art and technology. Speaking about the opening, studio head Tom Panton said:

"London was a natural choice, taking into account how much it influenced music. We wanted somewhere busy, a place that works in the daytime where the people we want to speak to are right on the doorstep. It has to have a real community feel. We were excited when we found this building, just off Redchurch Street - originally a printworks but most recently a large catering kitchen. We’ve preserved the architectural integrity of the building while also lining it completely acoustically, so there’s a foot of mineral wool and a triple-skinned wall."

The studios were launched at the end of September with panel discussions featuring Jane Beese (Roundhouse Head of Music), Nick Luscombe (BBC Radio 3, Musicity) and Emily Gosling (Editor, It's Nice That), soloists from the London Contemporary Orchestra performing works by Steve Reich, Jonny Greenwood and Micachu, as well as DJs including Domino Records, Spiritland and Erased Tapes.
