The TecnoCampus has today inaugurated a new recording studio equipped with state-of-the-art technology for recording and editing audio in accordance with current standards in the music industry. The studio, which has represented an investment of € 112.000, makes it possible to reconcile the conditions of recording and professional music production with teaching, as it has a control that incorporates a stand with a capacity for 25 students.
The opening ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Mataró and President of the TecnoCampus, David Bote. Also speaking was the former director of Catalunya Ràdio and Digital Media at the CCMA, Saül Gordillo, who gave a talk on innovation and new audiences in the audiovisual sector; the general director of the TecnoCampus, Josep Lluís Checa; and the coordinators of the degree in Audiovisual Media, Jordi Roquer and Rafa Suárez.
In his speech, Gordillo highlighted the commitment to digital native content, designed for new forms of consumption such as podcasts with immersive sound or videos on platforms such as YouTube. "Radio," he stressed, "is also visual, and must use audiovisual materials and social media." Programs such as "The Bunker", "Crimes" or "Adolescents", he concluded, are the result of this strategic vision to renew in content and forms of distribution "with the aim of rejuvenating audiences.
The space inaugurated today consists of a recording room with direct view of the control room, as well as video and audio connection with other spaces of the TecnoCampus such as the set or radio studios. With this infrastructure, small and large format recordings can be made, from traditional productions to orchestral recordings. In the technical field, it has a full range of specialised microphones, Neve, Api and Focusrite preamps among others and the Staten Raven control system, which allows you to work with two large touch screens on all your own editing parameters of a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation).
The studio also incorporates a Dolby Atmos monitoring system, a multi-channel audio system, increasingly used in film, video games and music, from which the user lives an immersive experience. All these virtues of the space have been verified today, the day of the inauguration, in the musical performance of the group NOUNEE, led by a student of the Degree in Audiovisual Media, Abril Ndjel.
Plaque in homage to Professor Jou
Coinciding with the inauguration of this space, today was also the discovery of a plaque in honor of Professor Joan Jou, who died last year and was one of the main drivers of the creation of the Degree in Media Audiovisuals. By agreement of the Board of Trustees of the TecnoCampus Foundation, the SERMAT (audiovisual material loan service) will now be dedicated to Professor Jou. Professor Alfons Palacios was also in charge of dedicating a few words in memory of Joan Jou as the closing of the event.
