Englewood, NJ (March 24, 2004)–Bennett Studios recently brought Ken Thornhill on as studio manager. Thornhill worked for the last 8 years as record production manager at Soundtrack Studios in Manhattan.
“The planning and design of Bennett Studios allows the facility to be prepared for the way the industry is moving,” commented Thornhill. “Offering the best in acoustical design with construction provided by Andy Munro (Air London), and owner/chief engineer Dae Bennett, the studio is among the high-end facilities in this area, including Manhattan. The fiber optic link to the Harms Theatre opens the door to low cost live recording for DVD production. The experience, and resume of the engineering staff is more than impressive.”
Studio owner Dae Bennett added, “Everyone here is excited that we’ve been able to work on such high end projects this year. With five of those projects winning Grammys in only our second year of business and the great addition to our staff of manager Ken Thornhill, we’re piosed to have another exceptional year.”
