Historic recording studios and venues that most people will never be able to visit are now accessible through Audible Adventures. Award winning producer and architectural historian Scott Cardinal, known for his lavish books about music venues and homes of the famous has launched audio documentaries depicting what it was like to live and work in some of the most famous studios and buildings in music.
Following the success of his books that include John Lennon’s Tittenhurst Park featuring unheard anecdotes and extensive illustrations, Cardinal has now produced audio documentaries to accompany the books. “The vision of Audible Adventures came upon me while in the courtyard of the Dakota apartments,” said Cardinal. “All most people know is that John Lennon lived and died there so I wanted to give people the experience of walking into that historic building when John Lennon was there. I also want to show what it was in the 1880s by bringing it to life through music and audio effects.”
Narrated audio tours available include studios and homes of The Beatles, Elvis, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, the Who, Queen, Michael Jackson, Prince, Gianni Versace, and many more are in production. “There are also tranquil guided meditations through the gorgeous gardens that sparked the senses of countless musicians and artists” added Cardinal. “We have already produced over two dozen audio tours of George Harrison’s fabulous Friar Park.”
Future productions include legendary recording studios such as Ascot Sound Studios, Apple, Headley Grange, Hookend Manor, Lansdown Studios, Morgan Sound Studios, Olympic Sound Studios, Ridge Farm, The Mill Studios, Startling Studios and many more.
“Music industry professionals are extremely excited about our productions” said Cardinal. “They get to visit places that they once worked in or only have heard about – especially those that are no longer in existence. Our Audible Adventures are also perfect for those eager to learn about these impressive spaces where so much magnificent music was made.”
