The media and communication sound studio in Building 94 offers students industry-standard facilities and equipment.
Project: Vocational Education (VE) sound studio, Building 94
Architect: Six Degrees
Commenced: 3 December 2014
Completed: 27 February 2015
VE Sound Production students will use the level 1 space to work on projects involving audio recording, mixing, mastering and audio editing.
The studio’s walls, door and ceiling materials comply with strict acoustic demands. Industry standard audio-visual setups and high quality lighting equipment have also been installed.
School of Media and Communication Technical Services Manager, David Beesley, said it was important that the new studios presented students with improved facilities to ensure their work was produced to an industry standard.
“The improvements have been vast, and the rooms are hardly recognisable when compared to their pre-renovation former identities. The new spaces are of a professional standard and fit for purpose.” He said.
Advanced Diploma of Sound Production student James Young said the new space was a marked improvement on the former studios.
“The old rooms were a bit like shoeboxes, but the new studio has had some pretty awesome sound proofing installed.”
Importantly, students can spend extensive sessions in the new space, which is purpose built for the long-haul creative process. Peter Malatt, project architect from Six Degrees Architects, said students could spend up to ten hours straight in the studio.
“It was crucial for the school to create high quality spaces to serve students’ needs.”
