Innsbruck Records is a boutique record label based in NYC offering global digital distribution (via The Orchard / Sony) with a state of the art studio in Brooklyn, New York. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, we are working diligently and differently to ensure our artists can continue to create and record their new music with the utmost safety protocols in practice. The Innsbruck Record Label continues to operate remotely and just distributed Q1 2020 royalty statements to its distribution clients. We also just submitted an artist for the Grammy Hall of Fame (The Recording Academy allows online submissions).
Meanwhile, at the music studio, we have found creative ways to be productive while safely social distancing through Source-Live (@sourceelements) technology. We offer our clients around the globe the opportunity to work remotely at their convenience. Roman Klun, Producer / Engineer (and Innsbruck Records Managing Partner) was first introduced to Source Elements technology through the late great legendary music producer, Phil Ramone, while working on a George Michael Production (Symphonica Tour, 2011).
Some pre-pandemic projects were already in progress and are now in mix mode; while other projects are just getting started. We utilize Source-Live technology for its high quality, low latency, encrypted audio and video streaming capabilities for our ‘remote’ sessions. There is no need to wait for client approval via email or with an exported MP3. We can obtain immediate feedback from our clients and make ‘live’ edits on the streaming session(s). This technology has facilitated our business continuity plan during this unprecedented time in the industry. Source-Live is a truly disruptive technology and we are grateful for the ability to connect with our clients while following the social distancing guidelines. Mix, edit, repeat is our motto!
Just yesterday, studio partners Aaron Comess (drummer and co-founder of Spin Doctors and Grammy nominee) and Roman Klun (2x Grammy nominee, winner of 2 Juno Awards, 1 Academy Award win, 1 Golden Melody Award, etc) were able to move forward with a remote ‘live streaming’ session with musicians on a new recording for an artist. Monday, May 18th, another recording session took place with New York clients (Jimi Hazel, guitarist with the renowned 24_7 Spyz along with drummer, Tony Lewis and bassist, Rick Skatore).
