In an effort to consolidate its efforts on audio-recording facilities, Kampo Studios has eliminated its “Audio/Video” moniker and has made available for sale its entire inventory of video gear. Kampo Studios will retain its lock-to-picture capabilities in its two state-of-the-art SSL console-equipped studios: Studio A and Studio C.

With the renovation of Kampo’s video suite into a Pro Tools suite, Kampo is proud to welcome the newly formed production team of producer/musician Dougie Bowne (Chris Whitley, Marianne Faithful, Cibo Matto, Lounge Lizards) and producer/engineer Patrick Dillett (They Might Be Giants, Marisa Monte, Mary J. Blige, The B-52's, Ryuichi Sakamoto). The innovative pair is currently in pre-production for the forthcoming solo disc from former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty.

Also in were producer Bill Laswell and longtime engineer Robert Musso in Studio C for a 5.1 surround mix for African world music singer Gigi, with assistant engineer Alan Ford.

Guitarists Arto Lindsay and Marc Ribot were at Kampo with engineer Patrick Dillett laying down tracks for French artist Sebastian. Lindsay was back in Studio A wearing the producer hat with Dillett engineering tracks for an upcoming release from bassist Melvin Gibbs (John Zorn, Rollins Band, Sonny Sharrock) with assistant Alan Ford.

Sessions@AOL continues to bring talent to Kampo for its live performances and interviews. This season has seen the likes of David Gray, Tonic, Kenny G, Ryan Adams, Shaggy, Badly Drawn Boy, The Donnas, Sean Paul, Andrea Bocelli and Lou Reed, with Kampo engineers Greg Thompson, Alan Ford and Michael Bowden at the helm.

Kampo engineer Michael Bowden has mixed the critically acclaimed debut solo album History That Has No Effect (JMZ Records, www.jmzrecords.com) from Tyondai Braxton. He is continuing work with Braxton (who is the son of experimental composer Anthony Braxton) on his forthcoming band project. Bowden also recorded and mixed the debut from Parts and Labor, who are releasing their Bowden-engineered full length this coming spring.

New York bassist/composer Brad Jones (Marc Ribot, Jazz Passengers) recorded and mixed an as-yet-untitled forthcoming quartet album with engineer Kenji Shimoda and assistants Michael Bowden and Hideki Nishino.
