The Composition and Recording Studios are the hub of a thriving and growing activity in studio composition, ranging from taught undergraduate units to research, and from acousmatic composition to film soundtracks to interactive performance. The Studios are directed by Neal Farwell and managed by Jonathan Scott. The Studios host a regular electroacoustic concert series under the title Sonic Voyages. Special events have included staging the composition strand of the 2007 Royal Musical Association Research Students' Conference, and an international call for electroacoustic video works. Recently featured guests include Jonty Harrison, Adrian Moore, and Kjartan Olafsson. Based at the Victoria Rooms, Queens Road, Bristol, BS8 1SA, well worth making the most of if you are a Bristol university student.

Room4 Studios

Room4 studios is a new studio based in Bristol and is located on 145A Whitehall Rd, Redfield, Bristol BS5 9BJ. They are known for having a great studio. The studio features 3 live rooms, a control room & an instrument room. The rooms have all been acoustically designed & treated by Recording Architecture, the world renowned studio designers. By default the 3 rooms all have a similar sound but we can move the acoustic treatment around to alter their characteristics. The multiple live rooms make the studio great to record bands playing live, by having you all playing together in one room but with the amps in different rooms. The prices are very affordable and this place is definitely worth checking out.
