Jon Bon Jovi swept the floors of the studio, according to Variety.
In recent years, Lady Gaga and the cast of Hamilton there are tracks.
In 2017, the space sold for $ 18 million and closed. It is now owned by Sound Dog Ventures. Berklee and one of its former directors, Peter Muller, were the other parties to the public-private partnership. Muller is a musician and founder of PDT Partners, a hedge fund known for its quantitative strategies.
“The Power Station is one of the world’s most iconic recording studios,” Muller said in 2017, when the partnership was announced. “Knowing that we are saving a studio that has hosted so many legends is impressive. ”
This fall, BerkleeNYC’s first class signed up, and a few musicians and a Broadway cast were recorded, the mayor’s office of media and entertainment said. The new space includes high-end video capture and virtual reality equipment; professional lighting; and live broadcast and broadcast capabilities. BerkleeNYC staff manage the studios, which are open for booking for professional sessions.
Programs aimed at the public, including artist lectures and continuing education, were part of the building’s initial plan but have yet to be announced.
