stunning acoustics in a former dance hall

Studio Nord Bremen

The ideal space for the sound of today

When Studio Nord Bremen opened in the 1960s, it was one of the first privately owned music studios in Germany. The 120 m² recording room has a live feel, direct and excellent for acoustic as well as amplified instruments. Top-class analogue equipment, an impressive collection of classic German tube microphones and the fantastic acoustics of the recording room make it the perfect solution for any modern music production.

Relaxing in-house accommodation for artists

On the top floor of the 100 year-old house, there is a 95 m² apartment at your disposal with four bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. Feel inspired and focused in the old-style ambience of the building and the peace and quiet of this suburban setting! Studio Nord resides in what used to be a dance hall, surrounded by public parks, noble villas and farms. A supermarket as well as culinary offerings from fast-food to finer eating establishments are all within walking distance. The train station Bremen-Oberneuland is also just a few steps away.

TV, library, board games
Guest bicycles
Bed linen and towels
Macbook and printer
Golf course, fitness studio and bathing lake in close proximity

If you require other accommodation, there is a first-class hotel just around the corner.

Studio Nord is 273 footsteps away from the train station Bremen-Oberneuland.

Arriving by train

The Metronom train (RB41) travels here from Hamburg and Bremen.

Arriving by car

Arriving by car is just as comfortable. Leaving the A27, the next motorway exit is only 2.5 km away. The A27 runs between Hannover and Bremerhaven and at the near-by Bremer Kreuz, it intersects the A1 that connects Bremen with Hamburg and the Ruhr area.

Arriving by air

Ryanair flies into Bremen from cities all over Europe. The airport is in the centre of the city and is connected via tram with the main train station. From there, a regional train leaves every hour that stops directly at the studio.

Pascal El Sauaf

»Pascal El Sauaf is a two-fold windfall for anyone working with him. He′s not, like many in this business, half a musician and half a technician. He is a whole musician and a whole technician. He knows what it takes to make a song, recognises a good melody, and is a fast and experienced technician when it comes to transporting the music into sounds and the sounds into recordings« (Francesco Wilking)

Picking the cherries from recording history

Studio Nord has a complete set-up from the 1950s - all first hand. The hand-built mixing desk from the early days and one of the first multitrack tape machines are still available and ready for operation. Our collection of German vintage microphones from the golden age of sound engineering is remarkable and unique. Tube technology from the 1950s and 1960s unites with state of the art recording equipment from the 1970s and 1980s and modern-day digital systems, to create such a wide spectrum of possibilities that barely a wish need go unanswered.

A wide spectrum of music

The tireless commitment of the Studio Nord team to the world of pop, soul, independent and jazz and our collaborations with some of the most successful pop producers in Germany have borne substantial fruits. Although the set-up at Studio Nord is hard to beat for analogue productions, this hasn′t stopped us taking outings into electronic genres.

Live and direct

The Studio Nord Sessions feature Dot Time Record artists performing in the intimate and warm surroundings of Studio Nord Bremen. Known for its impressive acoustic vintage recording abilities, each concert will also be recorded and released as a special limited edition vinyl under the Dot Time Records Vinyl brand as the Studio Nord Sessions. »I have always felt that a recording studio was a perfect place for concertizing.« said Dot Time Records founder Jo Bickhardt. »For an artist to connect with their audience to bring out the fullness of the emotional nuances are difficult to assume in a studio recording. By involving a studio audience, it also places the attendee in the element of the recording, therefore making them a part of the shared experience. Studio Nord Bremen is the perfect environment to capture these acoustic properties and elements. I am excited to partner with them for this concert series and look forward to creating more of these types of events for our artists.«

The Concert Series Dates in 2019 are:

May 11th
featuring italian pianist Andrea Rea with his Trio

At the age of 17, the neapolitan pianist Andrea Rea founded the DEA Trio with double-bass player Daniele Sorrentino. They became a very popular trio that has won several contests. After countless concerts and collaborations Andrea decided to change the musical direction of his trio. He began looking for music that suited this specific trio and he lets all his influences shine through, with each song expressing a different character. All three musicians here have plenty of experience playing with many of the big names in the Italian jazz scene, but in this trio they seem to have found a unity that blends their playing into a warm and recognisable sound of its own. Andrea Rea (piano) / Igor Spallati (double bass) / Ugo Alunni (drums)

September 28th
featuring the New Yorker singer Adrienne West with her Trio
October 12th
featuring young german pianist Conrad Schwenke with his quartet
December 7th
featuring Italian vocalist Simona Parrinello
