your rocks off with Sony Studio to Stereo at Proud Camden with this free exhibition. Not decking the halls with bows of holly but with Sony hi-res audio, narration from 6 Music DJ Tom Ravenscroft and never before seen in one exhibition images of rock stars, recording their albums.

From Tame Impala to Paul McCartney, The Doors and Bob Dylan, this unique immersive exhibition will showcase seven iconic albums. Alex Proud of Proud Galleries recalls: “Through this exhibition I’ve been able to explore thedifferent and unique ways that artists set themselves up in the studio – you can now hear and see the magic. The rooms they choose, the way they set up the instruments and spread themselves across the space, the clothes they wear and the look they project while they’re recording, it all has an effect on the end sound.”
