ICMP celebrates new studio and music production courses

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) has opened a new studio facility in Kilburn, London.

To celebrate the opening of the studio, as well as the launch of ICMP’s Creative Music Production courses, the institute invited a number of industry guests to view the studio and learn more about the coming together of ICMP and Alchemea College – which closed its doors last year but has since been acquired by ICMP and continues under the new name Alchemea @ ICMP.

Attendees also heard from the patron of the new production course, legendary producer Gary Katz.

The studio build was a 12-month project managed by studio builders Slowglass. ICMP was the first to receive Audient's latest ASP8024 large-format console, configured with two producer panels in order to mount the Avid S3 control surface.

Outboard gear includes UAD’s 6176 Vintage Channel Strip and a Lexicon PCM 92 FX processor while Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Ableton Live are also being utilised in the studio.

ICMP has invested nearly 250,000 in facilities in the last 12 months. A large percentage of this investment was made to provide world class facilities for ICMP students.

“It is so great to see Alchemea College continue to live on through ICMP. Not only did the two institutions share the same ethos in providing small, personalised learning experiences for students we also have many of the Alchemea team joining us at ICMP,” said Mike Sinnot, facilities manager at ICMP and former director of Alchemea College.

“Students who choose to study Music Production at ICMP really are getting the best of both worlds. I’ve been working on the studio build for 12 months and it still takes my breath away every time I come in here, the students are so lucky!”
