The Blackbird Music Studios in Berlin have existed in various forms since 1986. They are closely linked to the career of their owner, music producer and musician Andreas Hommelsheim.
Originally conceived as a producer’s studio, a whole studio complex emerged from the first Blackbird Music Studio in Berlin-Friedenau with up to ten state of the art recording rooms, different mixing rooms for cinema, 5.1 and FS, as well as numerous edit rooms and offices.
Under Hommelsheim’s direction synchronizations of numerous well-known productions have been created here or in other studios, such as The Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas (1995), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), Hercules (1997), Anastasia (1997), The Prince of Egypt (1998), Southpark: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999), The Phantom of the Opera (2004), Happy Feet Two (2011), Ice Age 4 (2012), Epic (2013), Turbo (2013), Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) and many more.
Due to various restructuring processes, these studios, primarily planned for dubbing, are now operated successfully by SDI Media Germany.
Meanwhile, Hommelsheim has largely withdrawn from the dubbing business to focus on his actual passion, the production of music.
Therefor, he built another top class recording studio in Berlin, which has been operating since early 2013. The new Blackbird Music Studio is located in a factory building in Berlin-Charlottenburg where Hommelsheim and his team also run the music label and publishing company Blackbird Music, everything under one roof on several floors.
