High-end, three-room facility SF Soundworks (San Francisco, www.sfsoundworks.com) is making good on its motto: “Bringing the music back to San Francisco.” “We're expanding our guest suite and have had projects in from all over,” says resident producer/mixer Tony Espinoza. “Just in the last month, we've had folks in from Australia, Nova Scotia, L.A., Nashville and Boston.” Soundworks comprises Studio 1 with its SSL 9072 J console, a 9000 J equipped Studio 2 and Studio 3, a Digidesign ProControl — based indie suite. Recent projects include Espinoza mixing a single by EMI artist Subtle in collaboration with Sub Pop's Wolf Parade; Aaron Dematteo engineering an upcoming Harold Budd album with producer Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins); Loredana Palomares helping Sound Tribe Sector 9 track an upcoming release; and Joe Chiccarelli mixing Australian recording artist Kara Grainger and the session with Modderato (pictured above).
