Spreading the word - My company, The Sound Distillery NYC, is trying to sell one of our two voice-over booths. They are made by StudioBricks, a company in Spain, and I feel are the best modular, non built-in booths made (baring one brand where you need a construction crane to lift it through your windows (which you usually have to yank out to accomplish this). It is 5'x7' (internal), triple layered walls, one window, one door, two air-circulation units, and a microphone/cue breakout box. We purchased it new for $16,000 and we're selling it for $11,000, as it's in barely used condition. We are using one, fully assembled, if you would like to see an almost identical one up close. The one being sold is in storage right now. Local pickup or movers/shipping arranged by the buyer, only. If you or anyone you know may be interested, please DM me.

Many know, already, but thought I would do a FB/IG announcement to let you all know that I am closing the doors on the brick-and-mortar aspect of my beloved The Sound Distillery NYC.

Nate and I will continue the company in a virtual format, pursuing the same work that we’ve loved doing for the last 5+ years, working remotely, on-site or bringing our attended record and mix sessions to several of our other studio friends in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

To those of my friends who are not in my “industry”, thank you all for your support and your friendship, and to those of you who are compatriots in this crazy biz of advertising, audio production and sound-mixing, your years of support and trust are deeply appreciated, and we hope to continue both a great friendship and a productive, creative, fun working relationship for many years to come.

If anyone has any questions, or you just want to check in with us, please feel free to contact Nate and myself at [email protected] and [email protected] - we look forward to hearing from you all.

I know it's been a rainy weekend, but I hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend - melancholy weather to accompany thoughts about those who died protecting us.

Love,
Glenn

Vernon Reid, setting up for a video shoot with @ivanchopik at @thesounddistillerynyc.

So bummed I was out of town for this!

During my first few weeks at Berklee School of Music, back in the fall of 1982, I erroneously tested very highly re my level of talent as a musician. Because of this, I was placed in a performance ensemble with the great French jazz musician brothers, Jean Baptiste and Gildas Boclé (vibes and bass), along with Will Calhoun (drums) of Living Colour. I was massively outgunned and humiliated by the blazing talent of these amazing, brilliant musicians, so I frantically bailed out of that ensemble within a few weeks. That experience solidified my already solid plan to pursue audio engineering, and to take a pass on a life as a working musician.

Thank you Will Colhoun, the Boclé Bros, and indirectly, Living Colour, and Vernon. You pushed me into a 33 year career filled with fun, awesome peeps, great challenges and fascinating work.

I hope you had a fun time shooting with Ivan and meeting Nate, Vernon.

We've almost finished setting up the new studio. It's getting easier to shake up cocktails, too, as things fall into place. This one has been our fave since last summer (but it's evolved a bit since then).

~ 1½ part tequila
~ 1½ part mezcal
~ ½ part fresh squeezed lemon
~ ½ part fresh squeezed lime
~ 3 parts blood orange juice
~ 1 part juice from Stacey's tomatillo salsa
~ 1½ part Cherry Heering
~ generous dashes, to taste, of Bitter End Thai Bitters (spicy)
~ generous dashes of Scappy's Orange Bitters
~ shake with ice, pour over ice with a lemon twist.

Last day in the old space - sweeped it clean and handed the keys to our friend, Charlie, the super at the old 251. Great memories, and feeling kinda blue, today, but moving on to a great new studio and continued success in this crazy venture.

Our dear friend, Sam Grange, insisted on coming by, straight off of his flight from Paris, to help us at the new Sound Distillery, before driving to New Jersey for a couple of days of business meetings. Crazy French guy!
So of course, cocktails were required. First official cocktails served in the new Sound Distillery!
Our Tomatillo Margarita (summer can't start soon enough!):
~ 1½ parts Silver Tequila
~ 1½ parts Mezcal
~ 1 part fresh-squeezed lime juice
~ 1 part Tomatillo juice (squeezed from Stacey's delicious Tomatillo salsa)
~ 1 part Cointreau
~ 1 part fresh squeezed orange juice (I used blood orange)
~ a generous dash of bitters
~ a generous dash of spicy heat (I Used Bitter End Thai bitters)
~ Shake it up and serve in the rocks (with or without salt)
