This is another simple but innovative idea from Richard Branson's company Virgin. If you're a music producer and travel with Virgin Atlantic you're able to use their new recording studio ("The Edit Suite") in their Clubhouse, the carrier's lounge, at London’s Heathrow Airport while you're on your way to your next gig. The studio was designed and built by Guy Wilson of AKA Design in London.
Atlantic’s flights to New York and Los Angeles have long been popular with workers from the entertainment industry, and from now on any musician in need of a place to do some last minute editing, or to indulge a creative spark, can use the studio’s industry standard digital editing and mixings system to do so. Once finished, the tracks can be emailed or uploaded to a record company or broadcaster direct from the Clubhouse.
“As an airline we want to do all that we can to help every musician’s career take off and to celebrate the launch of the edit suite, we are excited to announce that the very first single to be edited in the Clubhouse will be released this week,” explained Virgin Atlantic spokesman, Greg Dawson.
“With a name like Cloud, this band had to be the natural choice to release the very first single. The final edit for their first single ‘Free my Soul’ was completed live at the Avid edit suite on May 14th and released within 4 hours of finishing the last note.”.
This sounds like the future!
