Village Studios

Village Studios A state-of-the-art, full-service recording complex housed in a vintage Masonic Temple in West LA. Famous for landmark sessions by music’s legends.

In every decade since its founding, The Village has produced many of the most memorable songs and soundtracks of that era. Built as a majestic Masonic Temple in 1922 and then later the American headquarters of the Maharishi, this historic landmark has been a premier recording studio since the 1960’s.

Our new Studio Z is up and running for T-Bone Burnett, Mike Piersante and Zach Dawes. The three will equally share the space for common and solo endeavours, and when they are busy elsewhere the Village will use the room for its commercial clients.

“We spruced it up with new acoustic treatment advised by George Augsberger and, of course, the new Genesys Black console. It is a dual purpose room for mixing and recording, and we have added tie lies to the Moroccan Room so that it can serve as a control room for that multipurpose room when it is available. This is ideal because it is literally right next door to the Moroccan Room and having the analogue aspect of the Genesys Black console, as well as it’s integration with Pro Tools, is a great addition to the facility.” -Tina Morris, Studio Manager

A note to all my friends from Al's Family

Al Schmitt’s wife Lisa, his five children, eight grandchildren, and five great grandchildren would like his friends and extended recording industry family to know that he passed away Monday afternoon, April 26. The world has lost a much loved and respected extraordinary individual, who led an extraordinary life. The most honored and awarded recording producer/engineer of all time, his parting words at any speaking engagement were, “Please be kind to all living things.”

Loved and admired by his recording colleagues, and by the countless artists he worked with, from Jefferson Airplane, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, Diana Krall, Dr. John, Natalie Cole and Jackson Browne to Bob Dylan—and so many more—Al will be sorely missed. He was a man who loved deeply, and the friendships, love and admiration he received in return enriched his life and truly mattered to him. A light has dimmed in the world, but we all learned so much from him in his time on earth, and are so very grateful to have known him.
