"The studio was at 74B Trafalgar Street, Annandale, conducted by Chaluz Enterprises Pty Ltd, Recording and Production Company. John Metcalfe’s and my involvement in its design and construction was from June 1973 to October 1974....The Trafalgar Street studios presented problems that were not only of producing a suitable studio and control room. It was under a flight path to Sydney Airport, and there were economic restrictions. The factory only had a roof without ceiling so a considerable amount of noise had to be eliminated by new ceilings and walls within the existing envelope....What we had not foreseen was just audible in the eerie quiet at night: the ships, berthed a kilometre and more away had their generators running – the very low frequency component of their noise was being transmitted through the water and the land mass all this way" - Memories of an Acoustic Consultant, 1961 to 1980, Ross Thorne (www.rossthorne.com)
