I'm posting this because I went there this morning to interview the studio owner/producer; not only was it a fascinating interview but I was blown away by the location. (I will ask for some photos because Blogger won't accept TIFFS). We sat outside at a table that overlooked what seemed like miles of grassland, a veritable prairie, with skylarks and swallows whizzing about and extraordinary old derelict buildings in the distance. It's got a unique atmosphere of isolation, but it's not scary: there's a little cafe shop at the entrance to the park that serves the occasional hi-visibility jacketed chap with a pint of milk and a bar of chocolate, and then there's just sky and grass as far as you can see. The studio itself has a very large live room which I think must have fantastic acoustics and there are no neighbours to get annoyed by the sound. There is a kitchen and shower and a patio that is a perfect sun trap.
Who reads this blog? I never really know and I quite like it that way. Maybe one of you is looking for a studio?
But please... no timewasters!
But please... no timewasters!
This is a unique opportunity to make a living running a recording and rehearsal studio.
We have converted a remote, detached building on an ex RAF base into a recording and rehearsal complex. The base operates now as a huge business park in a beautiful part of Buckinghamshire, with our building being on a disused runway on the far side away from the hub of other activity on the park, providing discreet and private recording or rehearsal facilities.
The park has great main routes access to London; A41/M40 and a good nearby rail link into Marylebone.
