Welcome to the Guide to the Week of Music, a round-up of music news, media and releases from the wide musical world. This week we explore the new Yotam Silberstein album, a forthcoming film about the world of Sound Techniques and some brand new audio and visuals from throughout the musical world.
A film about the famed Sound Techniques recording studio and artists who recorded there, is nearing completion. The studio — a former dairy in Chelsea, London — was converted by engineers John Wood and Geoff Frost, serving artists such as Nick Drake, Vashti Bunyan, Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention, between the years of 1965 and ‘76.
Directors Neil Innes and Nick Turner were inspired to make The Parts You Don’t Hear by both their love of the music made at Sound Techniques and their disappointment that the lives and careers of the engineers hadn’t so far been focussed upon. Their influence on music of the era stretches far beyond the walls of the Chelsea studio, as in addition to building the mixing desk used there, they created boards for studios such as Trident, Elektra and Sunset Sound.
A final release date for the film is yet to be set, but plenty of exciting interview excerpts have been shared on their YouTube channel in recent months. The film looks set to feature some of our favourite musicians and is certain to be a rewarding and revealing watch.
