Virtual Abbey Road Studio Tour
Tour The Famous Abbey Road Studio
Google have teamed up with production agency Stinkdigital to create an online interactive experience which allows the user to tour the famous Abbey Road Studios, learn about the recoding process and even play around and try out some of the equipment.
Taking interactive experiences to a new level, the tour allows the user to play with the J37 4-track recorder, which was used to record the Beatles iconic Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, along with taking a guided tour from producer Giles Martin or DJ Lauren Laverne and exploring different parts of the complex learning about the history of the Studio or even find out how vinyl is cut.
The tour has enabled music fans to get a closer look to the legendary studio from the comfort of their own home. Archived images and videos can be unlocked as the tour progresses, making this more then just a interactive guide, but a learning source.
Google Creative Lab project lead Tom Seymour says: “We’re always looking at how we can use technology to bring people closer to cultural icons and institutions around the world.”
