In Spring last year, a Trinity choir of boys and girls gathered in the Recital Hall to record the music for the Aardman stop-motion animation film, Robin Robin.
The 30-minute stop motion musical short, produced by Aardman for Netflix, stars voice cast Gillian Anderson and Richard E. Grant and tells the story of a robin raised by a loving family of burglar mice when her egg rolls into a rubbish dump.
Mr Swinson, Director of Music explains: “It was a notable occasion because – although the Recital Hall has now been used for many professional audio recordings – it has never been used for a film recording. Our singers frequently visit the major London studios, such as Abbey Road, to record film soundtracks and those studios are well set up to relay the movie to the artists; with time codes and to communicate directly with producers, directors and composers, who may well be in different countries.
So we were incredibly fortunate to be able to call on the services of Trinity parent and top sound engineer, Mark Rogers. Mark managed Abbey Road Studio One for a number of years – the world’s largest purpose-built recording studio – and brought both his vast experience and the required equipment with him to ensure that the session ran smoothly. The film was released late last year to critical acclaim and we delighted that it has just been nominated for an Oscar!”
