Huge success for studio sessions

Can Altay’s commission for Market Town, Loughborough Records Presents Presence, saw the upper floor of the Market Town Corner undergo a surprising transformation as we entered 2016. With the aim of capturing the ‘sound of Loughborough’, Can designed a pop-up recording studio that also functioned as a sculptural installation, and invited local musicians from all genres to come and share their sound.
