About The Presentation
ASA Chicago, AES Chicago, and Columbia College Audio Arts & Acoustics department jointly present John Storyk, Co-Founder and Principal of Walters-Storyk Design Group and designer of over 3000 media facilities. John's lecture will examine technical guidelines for creating an acoustically optimal recording studio environment. The science that guides the recording studio design process will be discussed, highlighting design examples from successful spaces.
The recording studio has changed dramatically in the past 10 years. Both business models and studio design/equipment configurations are markedly different, with new ideas emerging virtually every week. The shift from large “all at once” sessions to file-based “in the box” production has ushered in a new era of small, yet extremely powerful and highly flexible audio content creation environments. These ‘next generation’ rooms continue to depend on pristine acoustics, and the aesthetic and comfort factors remain high priorities. The success of these rooms depends on the architect/acoustician’s ability to create or ‘tune’ the environment to maximize their acoustic potential. This talk will examine technical guidelines for creating an acoustically optimal recording studio environment. The science that guides the recording studio design process will be discussed, highlighting design examples from successful spaces.
