Blackbird Studio has added VEVA Sound, LLC to their studio facility located in the village of Berry Hill in Nashville. VEVA Sound, formerly BMS/Chace, is known for its media restoration, technical processes, and archival transfer facility services.
This co-venture allows clients to move easily from the technical transfer facility to the studio environment for playbacks, overdubs, remixes, project-preparations for mastering, and a number of other in-house production opportunities.
Blackbird Studio manager, Rolff Zwiep, mentioned, “This plan has been developing for some time and we are glad to make this announcement. We are excited about the future of this venture.”
VEVA Sound’s executive vice president, Deborah Fairchild, says, “VEVA Sound is thrilled to join forces with Blackbird Studio. Together we will continue to preserve the legendary catalogs from artists around the world with the level of detail and expertise they deserve.”
VEVA Sound was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Nashville, with offices in New York, Los Angeles, and London. For 16 years VEVA Sound has worked to define, create, and implement the standards for how sound recordings are preserved and monetized. Through partnerships with The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing, The Library of Congress, DDEX, NDSA, and NDIP, the company has created technologies that allow clients to identify and properly credit their music collections, whether they be legacy recordings stored on analog to digital tape or current born digital projects.
Combined, each company has every piece of legacy tape equipment to accommodate the transfer of all recorded formats. Transfers at this facility will be housed within VEVA Sound’s state of the art platform, allowing artists to monetize their content with a click of a button. All metadata will be available to export via DDEX’s RIN message.
