Sweet Silence Studios

Sweet Silence Studios

Profile:
The leading Danish recording studio for rock music from it's creation in 1976 to the late 1990's. Founded by Freddy Hansson, it was taken over by Flemming Rasmussen in 1999. Per 2022, the studio is still in activity in it's fourth incarnation. It's sometimes credited as Sweet Silence Studio, Sweet Silence studierne, or simply Sweet Silence. The affiliated mobile unit is Sweet Silence Mobile Studio.

The original studio was founded in February 1976 by engineer and producer Freddy Hansson and located on the first floor of a building at Strandlodsvej 85 in an industrial area of Amager. He immediately hired 18 year old Flemming Rasmussen as assistant engineer. They had both been mentored by Ivar Rosenberg at his Rosenberg Studio. The first recording session at Sweet Silence Studios took place on 17 April 1976 and produced the major Gasolin' hit "Hva' Gør Vi Nu, Lille Du?". From the very beginning the studio became the leading recording Danish studio attracting national artists as Sebastian (5), Rugsted/Kreutzfeldt, Anne Linnet, C.V. Jørgensen, Savage Rose a.o., and in the later years Kashmir (2). Over the years also a large number of international artists like Rainbow, Cat Stevens, Ringo Starr and Metallica ("Ride The Lightning" and "Master Of Puppets") have recorded here. Flemming Rasmussen, now producer and main engineer, took full ownership of the studio in 1999.

In January 2000 the studio relocated to Njalsgade, Amager. This incarnation is sometimes credited as Sweet Silence Upstairs Studios. The studio at Njalsgade closed in November 2008 and the building was demolished in 2009. After the closure, Rasmussen continued to work as a freelance engineer operating as "Fwrproduction" and as main engineer at Winding Road Studio. In April 2014, Flemming Rasmussen, established the third incarnation, Sweet Silence North, in Helsingør. It closed in December 2017 and moved back to Copenhagen where the fourth incarnation opened in Bådehavnsgade in the Sydhavnen area in January 2018.
