A recording studio in midtown Manhattan. Reservoir, on the site first opened in 1979 as Skyline Studio, is a legendary space that has hosted sessions by David Bowie, Nile Rodgers, Lou Reed, Puff Daddy and many others.
Meticulously restored and updated in a 2015-16 renovation by owners Steve Salett and Patrick Dillett, with the live room and its famously good acoustics left untouched, the studio is the perfect environment for everything from chamber ensembles to live rock bands to large-scale film and TV productions. This is a homecoming for Dillett, who got his start in NYC in this room, working on records by Mariah Carey, the B52s, Mary J Blige and others. Reservoir is the hub of a developing, already vibrant community of resident artists including composer Nico Muhly, producer Thomas Bartlett, and guitarist Smokey Hormel.

They’re rarely hired to score movies, even female superhero films like “Wonder Women 1984.” The academy and women in the field are trying to change that.
