So, what is happening at Abbey Road Studios right now?

Abbey Road Studios is getting some new studios

This is the biggest transformation in the history of Abbey Road Studios. Two new rock and pop studios are being built to make Abbey Road Studios more accessible to developing artists. A new mixing stage, that is Dolby Atmos Premier accredited, is also being built to cater for the increasing amount of film work coming to the UK and builds on the Studios’ hugely sought after film scoring business. The stage will help film makers with all elements of post production sound as the film business in the UK continues to develop and evolve. 

Abbey Road Studios is helping the next generation of technology start-ups

Abbey Road Red is a program that develops and supports the next-generation of music technologies from music creation to apps, equipment and the wider technology that will change the way we create and enjoy music in the future. An incubation program gives start-ups access to mentoring at Abbey Road Studios and access to Universal Music. One of the first start-ups involved in the Red program is Ossic, a company developing the world’s first 3D headphone which utilises head tracking technology and the ability to dynamically adapt to the user via anatomy calibration. Applications are invited all year round and Abbey Road Red is the very first music tech incubation program in Europe.
