MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — Music and sound boutique Nylon Studios (www.nylonstudios.com), which has locations in New York and Sydney, recently expanded its business with a new, custom studio in Melbourne.
The 2,800-square-foot space includes two new audio suites featuring recording booths and 5.1 monitoring, along with client and staff collaboration spaces. Full-time staffers in Melbourne inclde executive producer Ceri Davies, composer Lydia Davies, head sound designer Paul Le Couteur, sound designer Ramsay Demarco and producer Alice Vanderwey. Collectively, the three location can offer around-the-clock creative services, as well as a global roster of talent.
Nylon global executive producer Hamish Macdonald is originally from Melbourne and felt it was essential to hire artists that are native to the local market.
“With the addition of our Melbourne facility, we still aim for our studios to remain boutique and personal, whilst adding to a powerhouse network of collaborative talent,” says Macdonald. “We have a lineup of incredibly skilled and dedicated individuals that can facilitate any workload and the strengths of the new Melbourne team will help to add a fresh energy to our network as a whole.”
In the new space, a 200-square-foot isolation booth was created to support Paul Le Couteur’s work with actors and the goal of capturing dynamic performances. Further extensions are underway to build a customized composition suite to support the work of full-time, in-house composer Lydia Davies as well as visiting composers from other markets.
