Based: Cape Town
Let your team be the rockstars with this unique corporate team building experience, in which one of Cape Town’s top recording studios plays host to groups of people from corporate clients to school groups for a memorable recording session!
Even though Milestones Studio has recorded internationally renowned artists like Queen, Annie Lennox, Johnny Clegg, Abdullah Ibrahim and many others, there is no need for the participants to be musical; the intention being to give everyone a fun, non-threatening experience in a recording studio, and memories to last them a lifetime! Clients bring in a team of between 8 and 15 employees to record a song. The song is then mixed by a professional, and an mp3 copy of the final version is made available to the client and the team. If required, the process can be filmed, and a lot of fun is had by all!
Located off Long Street in Cape Town’s CBD, the entrance to Milestone Studios gives no clue to the fact that Cape Town’s premier recording studio lies behind the glass exterior. Inside, five state-of the-art recording studios are set up for any audio-related job, from large scale music recording in Studio 1 to Post-production for film, radio and TV commercials in Studios 2, 3, 4 and 5. All studios are equipped with ProTools HD, and manned by a team of highly experienced engineers.
Milestone’s award-winning in-house composers have scored films like John Boorman’s “Country of my Skull”, which starred Samuel L. Jackson and Juliette Binoche, documentaries for the BBC, Animal Planet and the CBC (winning a Gemini Award for Best Music in Canada), theme music for many TV series, and jingles for countless television and radio advertisements.
Studio 1 features a large recording space with 7 metre high ceilings, four isolation booths, an array of vintage microphones, and the only Raindirk Symphony console in Africa. The space has been used for orchestral recordings, as well as recent film shoots for artist Brett Murray, and British band The Kaiser Chiefs.
