"We built the Studio originally as the American division for
the Swiss Band Yello, considered one of the godfathers of Techno
and electronic music. The band became known for their original score
in movies like Ferris Beuller's Day Off, The Secret Of My Success,
Nuns On The Run, Ford Fairlane, to name a few. We chose to built
a studio in an old-Hollywood house (built by a silent film star),
in order to combine the feel and inspiration of Hollywood's golden
years with technology of the 21st century. The concept was to create
a studio in a 'home' where clients live and work at the same time,"
