ELECTRIC EEL STUDIO

Support for the development of a new London recording studio for the band IMPERIAL DAZE

About the project

IMPERIAL DAZE
Dear friends
We are a young multi-national group (UK-Argentina-France) created in 2016 in London. Our first EP Solid Fair was released in 2017 and the second is in the process of being mixed for release in 2018.

Alex Cameron Ward – Vocals, Guitars
Félix Rebaud-Sauer - Guitars
Facundo Rodriguez - Keyboard, Vocals
Blain McGuigan – Bass, Vocals
Thomas Sunney - Drums

The essential tool for any band is a workspace, a place of research, creation, composition, practice ..... and recording.
A place available independently, freely, and at all times!

THAT IS WHY :
WE NEED YOUR GENEROUS AND FRIENDLY SUPPORT TO FUND THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR NEW RECORDING STUDIO IN LONDON.


 We are lucky to be able to build a recording studio in a Victorian arch in the historic London district of Bermondsey.




Our studio will be built in a huge disused freezer that was once used to receive all the eels of London before they were to be shipped off to fishmongers around the city!

ELECTRIC EEL STUDIO!

Electric Eel Studio will be a home for Imperial Daze where they will undertake rehearsals, recordings and general day-to-day production work.

We will also be using the space to create music for film, television and advertising.

We are currently composing the music for a couple of short films and also have a few compositions pieces for ad spots in the pipeline. This RIMMEL advert with KATE MOSS being just one example of our past advertising work:

We will welcome other artists from the fresh and inventive London scene, for rehearsals, recordings and collaboration so as to make ELECTRIC EEL STUDIO an active hub of creation and exchange.

Furthermore, we will be affiliated with The Doodle Bar and the new TESTBED music venue an artistic space that will be built right next door to our new studio in early 2018.

See here for the TESTBED SESSIONS that we will be reviving from our studio and the new venue.

Having already built a music studio back in 2015 in Battersea, we are now equipped with the know-how and equipment to transform a blank space into a professional music studio.
It was in this Battersea studio that we composed and demoed our first EP and then recorded it in the studio of our friends and supporters:
THE MACCABEES

With Electric Eel Studio we are now looking to create a studio where professional records will be made, an inspiring space where collaboration, fun and play can all co-exist and nurture life-long careers for 5 very hard working young musicians. 


What are the funds for?

WE ROLL UP OUR SLEEVES AND GET TO WORK.

The building works begin in January 2018.
They consist of building two soundproof and sound treated rooms,
floating and isolated inside the eel freezer!
One room will be a control room and the other a live room
with a corridor separating them both.

Don't miss us getting hands-on in our boiler suits on our instagram from January! We might even play you a song from the building site...



The budget for the purchase of materials, supplies and rental of tools is £9560:
Special acoustic insulation panels and plates
Floating floor
Insulators and Acoustic brackets
Acoustic panels
Electricity
Ventilation
Lighting
Paint and fittings

To raise this money, we are borrowing £6,000.
We are counting on your support to raise the remaining £3560
