It is truly pleasing to recieve the acknowledjement of Your work from Your customers. Acknowledjement of professionals is twice as pleasing. But when our works start to have being copied, feelings are mixed.

We look at this with a healthy dose of humor and accept such copying as a special kind of acknowledjement, though a quite twisted one. Copying takes different forms – from blind copies of outer look of Reflexion Arts monitors to outlandish references like “designed by Newell” or “built after consultation with Kravchenko” on studio websites. And besides others even owners of quite respectable studios are observed having done this.

So we came up with an idea to open a special “cunstcamera” or “anti-portfolio” on this site. This might be a separate webpage easy to get in but impossible to get out; something like the gallery of the grand progeny of Dolly the ship.

Some candidates to enter this page can be seen on these photos. Although, they have time till 1st of July 2010 to avoid such a fate.

Moreover, Reflexion Arts manager Sergio Castro has stated that RA lawyers will not leave such occasions without reaction.

What concernes with us – we will limit ourselves by humor for now…

In terms of geography we do not have any restrictions. Here we are guided only by common sense.

Our specialists are living in Ukraine, so we work mainly in Central Europe and the European part of the former SU, although there are requests from the Far East, Kazakhstan and Western Europe. When it comes to designing sound systems – no problem. But the construction of recording studios assumed the repeated visits of our specialists, so at large distances transportation costs may be disproportionately large. For example, there is hardly any sense to invite us to build a vocal room in Vladivostok or in Barcelona. At the same time, the construction of a large professional studio there may be more profitable than building a vocal room, for example, in Moscow. Each case is unique in its own way.

Recently Kiyv was visited by Steynway&Sons company respesentatives. The program of visit was tight and strictly planned. Firstly, Steynway&Sons reps visited Muzychi Recording Studio that is located near Kiyv and recently opened it’s doors to customers (look in Portfolio). It’s worth mentioning that the great pre-ordered grand piano of this firm is now installed in main recording room of this studio.

German Safonov, studio owner, says that specialists of Steynway&Sons so greatly loved the acoustics of the room and grand piano sound in it, that they corrected their visit plans and stayed in studio almost till the evening.

Steynway&Sons pianos are found in best concert places of the world, and it’s really hard to impress high-skilled people like these. This acknowledjement is twice as pleasing to us, becuse the author of the studio project is also a piano player in past.
