The Village Recorders used two brands to market the studios from the 1990's; "The Village" and "The Village Studios". Please credit these brands directly if they are recipients of a credit on the release in hand.

The Village recording studio in Los Angeles was originally built as a Masonic temple in the 1920s. Converted in the late 1960s, the studio retained many of its characteristics including the stained-glass windows. The facility houses an array of vintage sound equipment, including a Neve 8048.

At some point during the late seventies the company and the property were purchased by Jordi Hormel
(of the Hormel Chili family) and also served as the US headquarters for Australian based company
Fairlight Computer Musical Instrument Co. LTD. who were early pioneers in the development
of software / hardware based digital audio sampling technology with their "Fairlight CMI" unit.

Today, The studio is also home to the Santa Monica public radio station KCRW (89.9 MHz FM).
