Great and popular artists have been recording at Davout since its creation in 1965. Nowadays, four different studios are available for recording sessions but the A-studio is the most known for its natural acoustics and its orchestral room (largest cubic capacity in Paris). I joined this studio to improve my experience recording and mixing bands.


As intern in Davout Studios, I've been assistant in several recording sessions. Here are some artists which I have been working for:

    Philippe Rombi: Orchestral recording session for the original soundtrack of « Rien à Déclarer » (Dany Boon, 2011), more than 60 players were on the A-room. Instruments: Violins, Altos, Cellos, Double-basses, Winds, Percs, Harp, Piano (Fazioli). Sound engineer: Stéphane Reichart. Release: 2010.

    Princess Erika - Juste Erika: Full album. Instruments: Female voice, Female Choir, Guitar, Bass, Drummer. Sound engineer: Fernando Pereira Lopes. Release: 2011.

    Damien Saez: Essais. Instruments: Male & female Voices, nylon Guitar, Piano.

    Zabel - Douce Folie: Full album. This was the first studio album for this group. This has been a great experience for me. Instruments: Male Voice, Choirs, clean Guitar, several distorded Guitars, Piano, Fender Rhodes, Clavia Nord expander, Bass, Double-bass, Drummer, Violins, Cello, Musical saw, Percs.
