The list of shuttered studios includes landmarks to music history. In New York City, the industry lost the Hit Factory – home to prominent albums “Born in the U.S.A.” from Bruce Springsteen and “Graceland” from Paul Simon – and Sony Music Studios, where Nirvana recorded “MTV Unplugged in New York.” Several historic London studios closed recently, including the Olympic, where The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton recorded some of their most famous work. Half of the studios in Los Angeles have reportedly closed as well. Meanwhile, recording sessions are shifting into the home, where veteran engineers can produce clients at more affordable rates due to lower overhead, or where musicians are trying their hand at self-
recording, using not much more than a mouse, a USB cable, and a piano keyboard.
