Akin Studios – AKIN is an independently-run recording studio located on the third floor of the Armory. Started by Matt Scott and Sam Clement in 2011 with additional contributions from J.J. Beck, all Bennington College graduates, the studio’s clientele includes local musicians, students, and musicians out of NYC. Part of AKIN’s vision is to participate in community development through collaboration with surrounding farms, community organizers, and artist facilities. This includes starting a work exchange program that offers discounted recording time for artists willing to donate work hours to affiliated organizations and farms. The employees of AKIN work as musicians, arrangers, composers, producers, and engineers. In the execution of these roles, they aim to provide a personalized production that inherits a musical stamp of the musicians, arrangers, composers, producers, and/or engineers involved. AKIN is in a location that can conveniently, professionally, and affordably support both local musicians and emerging musicians out of the surrounding cities as well as students of the nearby colleges and regional schools. The recording environment at AKIN seeks to provide artists with a professional experience and professional results and to provide the traveling, emerging artist with an inspirational refuge from the exhaustion of city living.
