Sonos Studio London is Here!
Enjoy music as it should sound at our new home in London.
This week, we open the doors to our new home in London and the second permanent Sonos Studio space. We’re committed to shaping the future of the listening experience and to doing so in close collaboration with the artists whose vision our products will realize. That’s why we launched Sonos Studio – first in Los Angeles in 2012, and now in London where we’ve built a unique, acoustically tunable space where anyone can go to hear music as it should sound; where artists can experiment and share new ideas; a connecting point for a global network of musicians and makers.
Our audio teams seek to bring what happens in the studio into your living room in the purest possible way. We’re honored to work with many talented artists and producers, who lend us their ears and help fine-tune the sound you hear in your homes today. Sonos Studio is an extension of that work with artists – it explores sound, art and technology, providing a space where artists can experiment and share their work with music lovers in an intimate collaborative environment.
Since the beginning of the year, we’ve been working in partnership with artists and the local creative community to create an evolving programme of listening events, exhibitions, screenings, and workshops. For a taste of what’s to come, check out the Royal College of Art’s brilliant SoundObject student project. Or, more recently, the stunning performance from Max Cooper and Tom Hodge at Abbey Road Studios. You may even have visited one of our temporary studios in New York, Paris, Austin or Amsterdam – all of which you can read about in our Zine or at studio.sonos.com.
The space itself has been designed to deliver the best possible listening experience in every environment, tunable to every purpose and preference. Conceived by our sound experience leader, producer and composer Giles Martin, Sonos Studio London can be tuned to suit the needs of artists and producers. Movable elements in the ceilings and walls allow producers to create an ambiance and sound to suit different acoustic needs.
The Studio is a living prototype of the Sonos listening experience. Built in partnership with our acoustic engineers, this is the best place to experience Sonos and enjoy music as it should sound. Our workshop, inspired by our development labs in Santa Barbara, California and Cambridge, Massachusetts will host hack days and workshops,prototype new experiences, and work together with artists and music technology partners.
Perhaps most importantly, Sonos Studio London is open to all, throughout the day.
Sonos Studio London opens for the final weekend of London Design Festival on September 26th. The London Contemporary Orchestra, recent collaborators with Jonny Greenwood and Frank Ocean, will be recording and performing a site-specific original work. Renowned artist, Yuri Suzuki, and Mogees will host open workshops. And as part of London Design Festival, there will be a panel discussion that explores music, design and architecture and much more throughout the weekend.
On October 2nd, we’re honored to welcome Imogen Heap to our space as she seeks to revolutionize the way music is made and sold. Shortly after, we will be launching Sonos Studio London’s first major exhibition with Domino Records which opens on October 8th.
