Quiet Please!
01 Aug 2004

Ferdinando Arno's beautiful Milan-based studio Quiet Please! is featured on page 14 of the August 2004 edition of Pro Sound News-Europe. Described as "the ultimate in retro sci-fi chic, as well as some cool kit," Arno's studio is the source for sounds and music for 40% of all Italian television commercials on the air. Arno enlisted studio designer Andy Munro to deal with some of the acoustic isolation challenges posed by the studio's underground location and to advise on the acoustic properties of Arno's materials of choice: wood, glass, plastic, and vinyl. The result is a clean minimalist look that suggest the orbiting space station in 2001: A Space Odyssey or Number 2's interrogation room in The Prisoner. Or, as Munro describes it, "a deliberate tribute to the over-the-top sensibility of some 60's and 70's iconography." When it comes to gear, Kyma user Arno's philosophy is simple: "...we only have what we need and make sure it's both top-quality and practical."
