Leading acoustic treatment manufacturer GIK Acoustics has announced a collaboration with Abbey Road Institute, the educational arm of the world famous recording studio.
The Abbey Road Institute was launched in London in March 2015 to prepare students for careers in the music industry, operating from purpose-built, newly constructed studio facilities at the world-famous Abbey Road site in northwest London. The Institute offers vocationally oriented courses with a mix of theoretical and practical modules in music production and audio engineering. The first intake of students was in September 2015, on a 12-month course which leads to an Advance Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering.
Because of their reputation as an industry leader, GIK Acoustics was chosen to treat several classrooms and production rooms at the Institute in London, including their S6 Studio:
6A Alpha Panels and Monster Bass Trap on the back wall
Corner CT Alpha Bass Traps in back corners and Tri-Trap Corner Bass Traps in front corners
Red Spot Panels on side walls and black Spot Panels on the front wall
242 Acoustic Panels on the ceiling
“We are delighted to work with GIK Acoustics,” said Luca Barassi, Managing Director of Abbey Road Institute. “Their products and expertise have allowed us to set up one of our studios very quickly and with great results. The wide selection of colours, sizes and modularity of their panels were a major factor in our decision to use GIK products.”
GIK Acoustics President Glenn Kuras added, “It is an honor to collaborate with the Abbey Road Institute. Their wonderful program and ethos corresponds with our initiatives to educate and energize the next generation of music makers.”
