Recording Studio at the Old Carpet Factory was founded in 2015 by Stephan Colloredo-Mansfeld, music producer and a prolific collector of Psychedelic vinyl as well as rare musical instruments. He turned part of the family’s 18th-century historical Hydra mansion into a music recording and production studio. Marked by its remote location on the island without cars, breathtaking views, and unconventional physical space, the studio has attracted numbers of artists in pursuit of inspiration and creative freedom.
