From Monday 15th June the studio will re-open for limited bookings under specific circumstances.
We'll keep these details updated to reflect the latest government advice as that changes over time.
Right now that means:
Solo artists and groups that live in the same household can book recording sessions
Mixing will be carried out either remotely (i.e. without the client in attendance) or with only one other person present
We believe this booking policy is in line with government advice to not bring people from more than two households together in the same indoor space.
We aim to reduce the risk of transmission to an absolute minimum in the following ways:
Limited access: The only people in attendance will be clients who have made bookings. Compared to shops and other public business which are now open again there will be far fewer people from different households using the space.
Personal hygiene: We have plenty of hand sanitiser and face masks and encourage clients to make use of both whilst here.
Regular cleaning: between sessions with different clients we will clean surfaces in common areas, and use disinfectant wipes to clean shared equipment. We'll be especially careful to make sure that microphones, instruments and amps are disinfected between uses by different people.
Distancing: We'll aim to maintain the recommended 2m distance between people from different households during sessions. Although this may not always be possible, closer interactions will be kept to a minimum, and most of the time during recording sessions we'll be in completely separate rooms.
We understand that in order to operate safely in these ways it may mean that sessions run slower than usual, or may need to be cancelled or re-arranged at short notice. We want to make sure that the cost of this does not fall on you.
We'll be suspending our usual notice period for cancellations. We don't want anybody to bring COVID-19 with them to the studio so we'll be happy to rearrange any recording session without notice or penalty.
We won't be charging for session overruns of up to two hours. A full day session is normally eight hours, but we'll be happy to run as long as 10 hours in order to make sure you don't lose any recording or mixing time to the measures we have to take to keep the studio a safe environment for all our clients.
If you have any concerns or questions about making a booking or how your session will run, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss them with you.
