Sony Music Studios Goes Belly Up
Sony Music Studios, the five-floor, multi-studio and sound stage facility, located on West 54th Street in New York City will be closing after a long slide. The facility that was “managed” by Executive Vice President Andy Kadison, hosted countless recording, mixing, mastering and live performance sessions since Sony purchased the building in 1993. However, after the highpoint of Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged, the company hit the skids despite being a production hub for some of the industry’s biggest pop stars, producers, engineers and television shows including the PBS series, Sessions at West 54th Street.
The studios will reportedly close in mid-to late-August 2007. The news comes right on the heels of Sony pulling the plug on their Connect online music store.
