Bearsville Theater (Pic: Neil Segal)

Originally intended by music impresario Albert Grossman as a showcase for his artists – among them Bob Dylan, The Band and Janis Joplin – the Bearsville Theater is equally historically important and well-known. Grossman founded the Bearsville creative complex in the 1970s in Woodstock, but died before the theatre’s completion leaving his widow Sally to see it through to completion in 1989.

‘Woodstock holds a special place in music history, starting with the Sound-Outs of the 1960s that inspired the Woodstock Festival,’ explains new owner Lizzie Vann. ‘It’s an amazing place, just two hours from New York City, and Albert really created the renown of today’s Woodstock by building the Bearsville complex here. We’re excited to bring Bearsville Theater into the musical heartbeat of the region again.’

Lisa Bella Donna working on December’s Pentacle

Rather than layers of hooks or driving rhythms, Lisa Bella Donna’s electronic music compositions music explore deeper musical territory – and, using Solid State Logic’s SiX small-format mixer and an SSL 2+ interface, she has achieved a staggering level of sonic detail on her latest release, December’s Pentacle.

‘I basically wanted to push the SSL SiX and SSL 2+ to their limits and record a piece that is sonically rich and detailed,’ she explains. ‘I carefully tailored every aspect of this recording to my SSL set-up – there was no other outboard gear used on this record except for a few plug-ins. It was all tracked, mixed and mastered through the SiX and SSL 2+.’

AWS 948

Since making his mark on the Atlanta trap scene in 2010, rapper Future has released eight solo full-length albums, six collaborative albums, and numerous mixtapes and other projects.

At the 5 Star Production Studios complex in Atlanta, the DAW control and automation capabilities of Solid State Logic’s AWS 948 δelta SuperAnalogue console – alongside the analogue workflow of the XL-Desk and advanced DAW integration of the Nucleus2 controller – are helping the studio engineers and producers to keep pace with the prolific rapper – and the other artists that they work at frenetic pace around the clock.

Friederike Krüger

The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) expedition represents the world’s greatest arctic research endeavour and is a milestone in climate research.

One of those taking part in the expedition was Friederike Marie Krüger, a German teacher who exchanged classroom for a research ship berth for six weeks in order to create teaching materials. She also made a documentary using Sennheiser microphones.

Bellevue Baptist Church

The largest house of worship in Memphis and one of the leading churches in the Southern Baptist Convention, the Bellevue Baptist Church recently renovated its audio systems, alongside extensive acoustical work throughout the church sanctuary. The project was led by the church’s long-time systems integration partner, Paragon 360, which had previously designed and installed its scenic, lighting and video systems.

The new installation, in the church’s 6,800-seat main sanctuary in the suburb of Cordova, features Quantum7 mixing consoles at FOH, monitors and broadcast. In addition, an SD12 console is now also in use in church’s fellowship hall, in what Paragon 360’ Mark Coble calls ‘a full DiGiCo solution for the church’.
