Recording facility in Tessera (Venice), owned and operated by Andrea Volpato.

ANDREA SAYS



“Fox Studio is the place where I spend most of my time recording, composing and finding new music expressions. I started building it when I was child, in an old dismissed granary. It is located in the venetian country at 2 minutes from the Venice Airport and at 10 minutes from Venice Centro Storico. I am profoundly fond of both music and the artist who produces it. My goal is to understand the latter with all his needs, in order to find the best recording combination able to add value to his uniqueness. Who comes to Fox Studio brings in my life a new creative stimuli, and I think this is the best part of my job.”

Andrea Volpato is a multi-instrumentalist musician, producer and sound engineer. His education consists of a BA in Sound Engineering from the Conservatory of Music in Padua, a Master in Audio Mastering from APM in Saluzzo, and a Contemporary Drums Diploma from the CPM in Milan. He took chance to sharpen his Sound Engineer skills by working at Gran Teatro La Fenice in Venice, recording and mixing operas for RAI, and then at the Studio G Brooklyn in New York. He plays drums with Love In Elevator and has co-written, recorded and mixed their latest 7" released on Coward Records. He played drums with Autumn’s Rain and released two albums on Go Down Records and Valery Records. Moreover, he toured for with Lorelle Meets The Obsolete for two months in 2016. In 2011 he started working at Fox Studio and, since then, he has recorded, mixed and mastered music by different artists of various genres, filmed and edited video sessions too.

 



“Il Fox Studio è il luogo in cui passo la maggior parte del tempo registrando, sperimentando nuove sonorità e componendo musica. L’ho iniziato a costruire da giovanissimo nelle stanze di un vecchio granaio. Si trova nella campagna veneziana, a 2 minuti dall’aeroporto e a 10 da Venezia. La mia è una dedizione profonda, un amore assoluto verso la musica e chi la produce, con l’obbiettivo di comprendere prima di tutto l’artista e le sue esigenze, per poi approcciare la registrazione con le migliori soluzioni tecniche, valorizzando il più possibile l’unicità che contraddistingue ogni musicista. Chi viene a registrare al Fox Studio porta nella mia vita un nuovo stimolo creativo, penso sia proprio questo il bello del mio lavoro.”
