"Amid the developing coronavirus situation, we wanted to take the time to reassure you of the actions we are taking as a social enterprise and recording studio at this time. The health of both our customers and our team members is our biggest priority. We are following the advice of Public Health England and the World Health Organisation and introducing a wide variety of measures to minimise the impact to public health. 

Cleaning practices have been intensified in all studio spaces with the use of antibacterial wipes to disinfect equipment where possible. We have also put up signs requesting clients to sanitise their hands before entering the studios and would ask for your compliance with this request. Any of our team members who show even mild signs of flu-like symptoms have been advised to follow the government advice surrounding medical care and selfisolation, and we are ensuring that team members are supported fully during this time. We also ask clients who experience mild signs of flu-like symptoms or have been in close proximity to a person who has been diagnosed with coronavirus to cancel or postpone their booking for a later date.

For the time being, we will continue to remain open, whilst closely monitoring the situation and will take all appropriate action to ensure the safety of customers, staff, and our community. Our new opening hours are 10am-6pm. We are in the process of putting systems in place to enable us to deliver some of our services remotely or online: 
- Remote mixing through file transfers, stem mixing & mastering
- Pre and post-production (Editing, Tuning, cleaning audio)
- Consultation/tutorial sessions through file transfer, telephone & Skype
- Production of backing tracks for singers/vocalists & sound design
- Voiceover services for audiobooks, podcasts, film, tv, radio.

Sound Gallery Studios is run by not for profit organisation/social enterprise Sound Gallery CIC. Our aim is to nurture and develop musicians and musical projects in Exeter and the surrounding areas. Our Mission is the development of original creative works produced by talented musicians and the provision of music-making and training opportunities, especially for young people aged 12-25 years who are at risk of social exclusion.

Small businesses are already starting to experience the adverse effects of the national call for social distancing, and arts organisations such as ours are once again facing an existential threat. So if you are self-isolating and craving some positive vibes, please visit our online record label store where you can listen, stream or buy albums released on our label Hungersleep Records:

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation at this time. Please contact us through our website, email or call our landline/mobile if you need to discuss specific projects or sessions and check our website and Facebook page: for updates and new services.
