What is Studio Silo?

Tape Machines

Studio Silo is an Analog and Digital Recording Studio which is currently being build within a 90 m2 space that formerly served as an Ice Storage Silo for the Fish Factory and draws it’s name from it. Because of it’s former function the space had to be very well thermally insulated, resulting in an excellent acoustic isolation as well.

The view from Studio

The Studio is situated in the Silo tower on the top floor of the Factory and  has a striking view into the opening of the fjord. We believe that Stöðvarförður is an inspiring place to be and that it makes Studio Silo a desirable and magical place to practice musical creativity.

The Studio is designed by well known Acoustics Engineer and Designer John H. Brandt from Texas. With over 40 years experience designing Studios & Auditoriums world wide, John has made sure that every aspect of the design meets the highest professional standard. Therefore geometrics, acoustic treatment and ergonomics come together to create a fluent working environment. HERE is an interesting interview with John about his work.

The Studio will be a cozy environment and equipped with unusual sonic tools so musicians can shape sounds to their heart’s content. Most of the equipment is vintage with some very rare gems, accompanied by many custom-built and experimental devices which you will not find in any other Studio. We are one of the few Studios in Iceland which has the ability to record to multi-track magnetic tape with a purely analog signal chain. We can also mix to Analog Master Tape, providing a truly Analog end-product.
