Sound design firm checks into Bottle Yard
Emmy Award-winning music and sound design company Radium Audio has become the latest addition to the businesses based at Bristol's Bottle Yard Studios.
The creative audio company, which is headquartered in south east London, opened its new Bristol production facility this week, marking its first venture outside of the capital. Radium's presence brings the number of business tenants operating from The Bottle Yard Studios to a dozen.
Robyn Taylor, commercial director at Radium Audio, said: "We needed to increase our production capacity, and struggled to find the ideal space for expansion in London.
"We design and build our own instruments and create much of our sound source inhouse, so we need to be able to make some noise and a bit of a mess sometimes too.
"The Bottle Yard presented a very viable option for us for a number of reasons; Bristol's close proximity to London makes it logistically easier to manage the two locations compared to somewhere further afield, the area has a vibrant creative community with a great local talent base we can draw upon, and the Bottle Yard's management has offered excellent support throughout our design, fitout, and setup process."
The company, which numbers Sky TV, NatGeo USA, BBC, and ITV among its clients, has taken on a 3,600 sq ft space at The Bottle Yard.
Fiona Francombe, site director of The Bottle Yard Studios, added: "The calibre of their cutting-edge audio work is of the highest possible standard, pushing boundaries and winning critical acclaim internationally."
