As a librarian/archivist and collector, I am not directly involved with
this end of the recording process, so I was not aware of this studio's
existence before reading this article. Still, it touches on the "sic
transit gloria mundi" aspect of our collective interests on this list. In
some ways, it is more a comment on the current state of affairs regarding
real estate in NYC and how these forces are transforming the city into a
tourist trap/theme park and investment haven for non-resident billionaires,
than on the state of the recording business. Hyper-gentrification is
thriving and driving away so much that makes the city a place to be and
make a living in. "A Beloved Recording Studio May Be Priced Out of SoHo":
