A brainchild of young architect Yashita Tripathi, Soundspeaks Studio is a unique recording studio-cum-jam pad nestled in the heart of the city. It was her passion for music that led her to work towards creating a platform for young artists and budding musicians across the country to explore and showcase their talent which goes unnoticed more often than not. ‘‘The main aim of the studio is to find musicians from the grassroots and help them mix their sounds with modern age electronic music to create a masterpiece. It will get our brand noticed and give local musicians a chance to be heard,’’ says Yashita.
It is a recording studio that offers an interesting mix of services like pre/post-audio production, sound design, composing, corporate jingles, artists’/event management, team-building workshops and much more. ‘‘Our major clientele covers musicians, radio stations, television, electronic music projects, films and documentaries, independent musicians who are not signed by record labels and singer/songwriters who are looking for ways to record their music,’’ she says. Other than that, the team is working with state-of-the-art equipment which are hard to find under one roof such as MOTU-896MK3 Hybrid, Makie MR8 MK2, Solid State Logic Alpha, TAMA Imperial Star Drums and more.
To accomplish this, Yashita set out to collaborate with Arsh Sharma, the guitarist and vocalist of a Delhi-based alternative rock band called Circus. Sharma and Yashita got down to business the second they met. ‘‘The Soundspeaks Studio is a true reflection and amalgamation of young artistic minds and musical collaboration,’’ says Sharma.
Designed by Sonal Chanana, the art director for the studio, she has tried to give the space a friendly and relaxed feel. ‘‘It is a studio that will inspire every musician and non-musician. We have tried to make it as inclusive and interesting as possible. Music is the soul that can be heard by the universe and with that in mind, we set out towards realising our dreams,’’ says Sonal.
