We have begun soliciting materials for The Class of 2010, Mix’s annual photo spread showing some of the year’s well-designed audio facilities. Qualified facilities are ones that were either newly opened or substantially redesigned after March 2009. Please bear in mind that projects involving only new equipment installation or rewiring do not qualify for this particular feature, and that in the selection process the quality of the image is of great importance.
Take some time to think about facilities that might be appropriate. Also, please save this message, because the following are the specifications for materials submitted.
Please include at least one photo of the empty room (no people). We’re looking for high-quality images that include the console and monitors and/or tracking room room shots of good-looking studios. Photo files should be of substantial size and high resolution (300 dpi or greater).
We also need caption information, as follows:
Name and contact info of the architect/acoustical designer
Name and contact info of studio owner or manager
Name of photographer
List of major audio equipment (console, workstation, monitors, etc.)
Type of projects to be done in the studio
Date the studio opened or reopened
Brief description of design/acoustical features of the room
Please note that all materials must be received by Friday April 2.
Submissions should be sent to me via e-mail to [email protected] or mailed on disc to our office: Barbara Schultz, Mix magazine, 6400 Hollis Street, Suite 12, Emeryville, CA 94608.
