Glad to see you all.
Abbey Road Studios - UMG
Very light programme this morning. Please play this tune as though you've never heard it before", which would subsequently mark the first recording made at the studio. You can watch the video of this performance here. But as the years went on, pop music came to the fore and classical music suffered as a result. And, with Studio One operating largely as a recording space for classical music, it was being used a lot less often.

By the s, musicians and engineers even began using it as a space to play five-a-side football and badminton, before plans had been drawn up to transform the space into a car park and four smaller studios. Today, thanks to a deal struck with scoring facility Anvil by then studio manager Ken Townsend, Studio One is used most often to record the soundtracks to some of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster movies, the first of which being Raiders Of The Lost Ark in , while recent titles include Avengers: Endgame , Solo: A Star Wars Story and Captain Marvel.
The combination of the room's incredible acoustics and the availability of top local orchestras have made it a hot-spot for Hollywood producers and European filmmakers. The design of the studio has also undergone a number of alterations. Styled by well known Art Deco designers, Wallis, Gilbert and Partners who also designed the West London Hoover Building , Studio One was roofed with latticed steel trussles and distinct baffle boards on the walls. To begin with, orchestra's used to record in concert halls and churches, and so they based the look of the studio on these spaces, complete with a stage and seating for a large audience.
Since then, the original decorations have been covered with reflective acoustic panels, offering more reverb time and making the room feel more "live".
The distinct parquet flooring in Studio One however remains unchanged, as this helps to give the room its unique sound; if this is removed, the sound of the room changes. Studio One's control room marked the biggest change to the space. Originally, in the 's the room was used to cut straight to disc and was a lot smaller in size.
But, as technology advanced and recording sessions got a lot more complicated, a larger control room was built to accommodate more equipment. Arguably the most famous studio in the world, let alone within the Abbey Road complex, Studio Two is considered a mecca by many in the music business and music fans worldwide. In its early years, the space was used largely by big bands playing jazz and swing and smaller chamber ensembles, with a lot of comedy recordings taking place throughout the s.
