Silent Zoo Studios, one of LA's premier music recording sites, has named industry veteran Victor Janacua as studio manager. Formerly with Record One, Ocean Way and United Recording studios, Janacua brings a wealth of experience earned from decades of work in the music, film and TV industries.
"As we emerge from pandemic restrictions, Victor comes to us at the perfect time for our
further growth and position in Los Angeles," said Holden Woodward, owner,
engineer, musician, producer, and indie filmmaker. "We are excited to announce that the
studio is reopening with Victor and our re-capped 96-channel Neve VSP Legend console, brand new computing power, interfaces, and many more upgrades."
Victor Janacua is not only one of the most experienced studio managers in the ever-evolving music industry, but a popular performing DJ known for his widespread knowledge of popular music. "I am very fortunate to land here at Silent Zoo, which has just completed major upgrades and is now one of the few remaining orchestral size recording spaces in the city. I'm looking forward to seeing many old friends here in this fresh new spot."
Formerly the Bridge Recording, a renowned Los Angeles scoring stage, the venue is now under new staffing and management as Silent Zoo Studios. The distinctive facility was constructed to optimum professional standards and has served thousands of projects to date. Silent Zoo's 1750 sq.ft. live room, adjoining isolation booths and spacious 875 sq.ft. control room allow for large-scale productions to record comfortably. While continuing its legacy in screen scoring, the studio is expanding to serve major recording artists and record labels. New video broadcast capabilities make remote recording and live streaming straight forward.

Advanced studio lighting can create immersive color ranges throughout the studio. The studio is also
equipped to film and livestream concerts, shows, sessions, podcasts, and interviews.
