Green music makers may be a driving force for social consciousness, with charitable benefit concerts, money contributions and bio-diesel buses, but recording studios are still a major offender of energy conservation.
To offset the footprint of a music studio, be responsible stewards of environmental resources, and make great music; greening the studio is a monumental task. New England musician, Will Benoit plans to change that. He has always dreamed of building a recording studio. Benoit is the guitarist/vocalist for Boston-based band, Constants, and is the co-founder of Radar Recordings, an independent artist collective and record label. He recently announced his intention to create the first solar powered, eco-friendly recording facility in New England.
Benoit’s music and his life is already green. His band runs their bus on waste vegetable oil. He and his wife are vegetarians with composting gardens, and solar panels on his home. Their intention to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible, Benoit wants to build a green studio and is hoping to share recording options with other musicians.
