Studios feature - video tour coming soon
many months of meetings and negotiations, and our fair
share of anguish, I am delighted to announce the relocation
of Phoenix Sound, once again rising from the ashes",
say's Pete Fielder of Phoenix Sound.
The new home for Phoenix is on site at the world famous
Pinewood Studios, home of the British film industry.
Phase one of the relocation is a single studio facility
with a control room accommodating a 72 channel Neve
VR console and includes full 5.1 surround monitoring,
video projection, a wide variety of outboard equipment
and a complete range of multitrack capability.
and mixing music and audio for film, television and
CD, ADR plus all post production options are all available.
Musician capacity is around 30, however tie lines to
the enormous, and adjacent, F Stage could be made available
for full orchestral recording.
is already home to a mixture of audio and music related
business activities - these include Artemis Music and
Spatial Audio. The intention is to work closely with
these and other companies on site by offering complete
audio packages for film and television productions,
and also working alongside Pinewood's own dubbing and
post production facilities.
re-emergence of Phoenix Sound is being enhanced by a
coalition with David Ward's Gateway Studios, moving
from their long time headquarters at Kingston University.
Gateway's accomplished history will contribute to the
strong industry brand established by Phoenix, enabling
this new partnership, combined with the comprehensive
support of Pinewood's spectacular facilities, to create
a unique service to the film, television and record
industries. Additionally, Gateway's educational credentials
means their involvement will bring opportunities to
Pinewood for professional development training in audio
and sound for the film, television and music industries
in collaboration with the Musicians Union, an investor
in Phoenix Sound, and potentially BKSTS, the Production
Guild and Screen South.
creative talents of their pool of sound engineers will
continue to be available, including;
James Collins, Toby Wood, Erik Jordan, Mark Tucker,
Dave Moore, Dick Lewzey, Steve Lowe and Fin Barnes.
the past few months Phoenix Sound has been active by
providing services and engineers for, amongst others,
musical director Ray Monk to record and mix the music
for Granada Television's "Stars in their Eyes",
and hiring studios best suited for his requirements.
