PMC Studios Hosts Atmos Mixing Sessions For Orchestra of the Swan

News Image
PMC's London studio is rapidly becoming the go-to facility for producers and engineers who want to experiment with mixing music in Dolby Atmos.

Specifically set up to showcase the company's range of monitors that are suitable for immersive audio mix rooms, the Islington-based demo suite has already hosted recording and playback sessions for producers and artists such as Trevor Horn, Stormzy and xPropaganda.

One recent project undertaken in the facility was the Atmos mix of ECHOES, a dazzlingly eclectic album from Orchestra of the Swan (The Swan). Completing the cycle of mixtape albums, ECHOES – The Swan’s third album on Signum Classics – features works by JS Bach, Philip Glass and Frank Zappa, along with some new arrangements by Orchestra of the Swan’s Artistic Director, David Le Page.

"It is now a commercial requirement that we provide Atmos mixes of our projects, so when we were completing ECHOES our recording engineer, Simon Allen, suggested we did the mix at PMC’s studio," Le Page said. "We had an initial demo and then Simon set to work using material that we had recorded at School Farm Studios near Colchester. Simon was able to tease new elements out of his original stereo mixes so that the album sounded very different, but in a very subtle way. Atmos has given it a new dimension by adding depth to the soundfield and making it feel three dimensional – like stepping into a world of virtual reality. It was a great experience, and we are really pleased with the results."
