The city of art, of love and the best bread  in the world – Paris! Also a massive city in case of Radio Imaging? Easy answer: Yes indeed. Oli and I hung out with Matthieu in Paris this week. He was so kind to show us the most touristy spots on one single day plus gave us an incredible radio station tour in his home town. Thanks for everything, Matthieu, we had an unbelievable day in one of the most beautiful cities in the world! You rock!

Back to French radio: In general, I am really more than impressed. The stations, we visited are all the highest standard in broadcasting technology, their interior design is stunning and the Imaging in France is quiet impressive. The French scene is totally underrepresented through out the mostly English speaking Imaging world. This is easy to prove! Check the Pics, the interview and screencaps with and from Matthieu + the stations I recommend to stream. Enter The French Connection is back!

Here’s a little teaser of what French Imaging has to offer.

Hi guys.

Matthieu sent us some awesome pics of the mixing and mastering studio of the French sound engineer Thierry Rogen, based in Phuket, Thailand. Thierry had a long career as sound engineer ‘Désenchantée’ by Mylène Farmer or ‘La Poupée qui fait non’ by Mylène Farmer & Khaled, before he built up the Studios Mega in Phuket, Thailand.

A large studio with great view and only a few minutes away from the beach. It’s mentioned in a French article of Digidesign. Have fun translating it :). In my opinion this studio is one of the best located places in the world to create stunning audio.

These pictures are made before the big tsunami of 2004. Since then, nobody saw Thierry or his studio.

If you know Thierry or more about him, please contact us on blog@benztown.com.
