The Goldsmiths Music Studios, located on New Cross Road, have been designed to be a creative space for research, performance and recording where musicians, both Goldsmiths students and members of the public, can make professional-level recordings using state-of-the-art equipment.
Speaking ahead of last night’s launch, Godrich commented: “I’m very excited to help launch the new Goldsmith Music Studios. A good studio is as important a place to a music producer as the laboratory is to a scientist. It’s fantastic that such focus and energy has been put into creating a real working commercial facility for the university which prioritises free time for students and can teach them the craft and magic of recording ‘out of the box’. I look forward to working there.”
As well as producing all of the Radiohead albums and working with acts like Paul McCartney, U2 and R.E.M, Godrich is a member of Atoms for Peace along with Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea. Also in attendance at the launch were Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood and Travis frontman Fran Healy. x
