Bethlehem, PA (April 11, 2007)–A soundstage/screening room at StarCity Recording Company has been converted into a performance stage to be used for live band recordings, artist showcases, web casts and rehearsals. The 28′ x 12′ stage (pictured) offers greater flexibility to StarCity Recording and the musicians using the facility.
“I’m always looking for interesting places to record, and I’ve thought our theatre room would create a fantastic sound,” stated producer/engineer Jeff Glixman, StarCity’s executive vice president. “The theatre wasn’t being used on any projects, so we took what is our second largest acoustically controlled space, built the stage and relocated the 30 seats contained within the room. My hopes have been surpassed, because the room sounds incredible.”
According to Glixman, the key to the performance stage is its ability to be used as a tracking room controlled by the Axiom MT Plus in the facility’s Studio Plus control room. The performance stage houses an Allen & Heath GL3800 live console. Featuring a hard disc recording setup, clients also can record locally in the Stage room, making it a cost-effective option for musicians looking to record in an ideal environment.
The Stage will soon host its first recording session, as Simone, daughter of legendary singer and songwriter Nina Simone, begins tracking songs for a tribute project dedicated to her mother. Prior to deciding to work on this project at StarCity, Simone participated in a showcase in the Stage room, where, backed by a nine-piece band, she performed for approximately 20 guests.
“The sound of the room for Simone’s live performance was exceptional,” Glixman recalled. “And the feedback we received from those in attendance was extremely positive. We’re eager to begin tracking Simone’s project to see how far we can push the room in creating high-quality sounding music.”
