This recording studio located in Montmagny (15 mn from PARIS) was created in 1995 by Robert and Julien TEKEYAN (Whispers of hits, Cheb KHALED au FESTIVAL MAWAZINE 2012). Over the years, Frédéric PIERRE, Jean-Michel OUTTERS and Jeff TEKEYAN (ASA – Fire on the mountain) joined their efforts to work on its progression.
Its elaboration is based on a concept of relying for:
– firstly, on the fact that recordrings are made live, via the many available acoustic instruments of the studio (baby grand piano, Hammond organ, Fender-Rhodes Suitcase, Drum kits, great variety of drums…) and coupled with high quality microphones (Neumann, Royer, akg, Electro-Voice…).
– secondly on the aspect of the music produced, the studio being equipped with plug-ins, synthesizers and various effects (equipment).
These aspects accompany the purely technical evolutive nature of the control room by the implementation (DW. Fearn, Avalon, Summit, Universal-Audio, etc…) and most technically developped high quality interfaces (Lynx- audio, R.M.E, LaveryLab).
This orientation allows a high quality sound recording in many fields including drums and percussions based on the experience of Julien TEKEYAN whose career as
a drummer and Percussionnist is rich and diverse.
Subsequently, the studio has embraced a wide range of artists and projects such as:
JEHRO (Victoires « world » de la Musique 2012), SOHA, Rod JANOIS, TOUMAST, TUDYKA, NAMASSA DIOUBATE, Patrick PERSEE, Laurent HENNEQUIN, Margot VARRET, TEKETIBOUM, The KANVAS, Denis GUIVARC’H, Anouch HIGHSOUL (with Omar SOSA on piano) etc…
Many musicians, composers, arrangers collaborated with the studio, for example Antoine ESSERTIER, Cyril MORIN, composer of series and films such as: The BORGIA’S, ZAYTOUN…
At the same time, the studio proposes arranging, mixing, and directing work based upon the know-How of many musicians including Julien and Jeff TEKEYAN, (Musicians, composers, arrangers), leading to the provision of an e-mixing stemming from the above-mentioned new technologies. (e-mixing)
