Additional Company Overview

Real World Studios was conceived by Peter Gabriel in 1986 as nothing less than the recording and mixing facility of his dreams. He had strong and, at the time, radical views on what a studio session should be. The traditional paradigm of separating performers from each other and the engineer by putting them in isolated rooms felt restrictive, a hindrance to the creative process. Peter envisioned a space without such divisions, and the idea behind Real World was born – an idea that’s not only stood the test of time for over 25 years, but also played a major part in defining the sound of innumerable records.
