WSDG co-founder John Storyk presents a lecture on the evolution of the contemporary recording studio at Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata.
Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG) co-founder, architect and acoustician John Storyk recently addressed a gathering of more than 100 students and members of Italy’s pro audio industry at Rome’s Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata. Giulio Curà, WSDG’s representative in Italy, coordinated the lecture.
Storyk’s 90-minute presentation was entitled “Acoustics and Architecture of Recording Studios, From Electric Lady To Today,” and provided an insightful retrospective on the art, science, acoustic and aesthetic evolution of the recording studio.
The presentation began with a look at Storyk’s first design commission, Electric Lady Studios in New York City’s Greenwich Village, in 1969.
Storyk also included examples of how changing technology and advances in acoustic realization have raised the standards and capabilities of today’s studio environment. His more recent examples included Jungle City in New York City, Paul Epworth’s The Church Studios in London, and the Berklee College of Music complex in Boston at 160 Massachusetts Avenue.
