James Peterson Personal Studio

Santa Monica, California


Shortly after being honored in 2010 as ‘Breakout Composer of the Year’ with a ‘Jerry Goldsmith Goldspirit Award’ for his score for ‘Red Canvas’ and other significant work, James Peterson has opened his studio in the heart of Santa Monica’s media district.

The generous composing, mixing and control room is situated within a 10,000 square foot industrial building, offering many locations for recording in various acoustic environments. An additional production space is linked to the main studio and a shared central machine core.

With a streamlined and clean design and bold colors, the rooms reflect their owner’s taste and offer a comfortable and spacious environment for the writing, production and presentation of his trademark orchestral compositions.
