In the Studio: Asphodel and Recombinant Media Labs
Tuesday, May 29th, 2007
In part one of a series, XLR8R Technology editor Ken Taylor takes you on a tour of one of electronic art's finest facilities, Asphodel and Recombinant Media Labs. Comprised of an unprecedented 16.8.2 -channel, 10-screen surround-cinema performance environment with an external control room, a suite full of new and old synthesizers (all in mint condition), a DVD- and CD-mastering studio and a recording studio with top-of-the-line equipment spanning nearly every era of electronic music, Asphodel and RML is a sound artist's dream come to life. While the technology is impressive, it's only one aspect of what makes these studios special. We'll explore the facility further in future episodes.

Every week XLR8R TV goes behind the scenes with the musicians, artists and scenes covered in the pages of XLR8R. Since our debut episode in March 2007, we've gone go-karting with Modeselektor, country music shopping with Devin the Dude, schooled you in Dubstep and Detroit Ghettotech, given pro tips on home music recording, answered love letters with Chromeo, set up an art show with Maya Hayuk and taken you to our favorite underground spots -- like an ex-police mobile command unit turned veggie-oil powered rock venue.
