  • Abramorama"The studio definitely has the most unusual of stories", explains director Hannah Berryman.
  • "Started by two farmers who wanted to record themselves and other locals, it grew and grew, animals getting kicked out of barns to make way for the musicians?"Berryman is describing Rockfield, a series of converted farmhouses deep in the Welsh countryside that holds the distinction of being the world's first independent residential recording studio.
  • A number of celebrated bands, from Black Sabbath and Oasis to Robert Plant and Queen, have recorded at Rockfield (you probably spotted it in the film Bohemian Rhapsody, as it's where Freddie Mercury and the gang recorded that legendary tune).
  • And the studio is the subject of Rockfield: The Studio on the Farm, a new feature documentary by Berryman that's releasing online May 14.
  • Another band that touched Rockfield is the chart-topping rock group Coldplay, the UK act comprised of Chris Martin, Will Champion, Jonny Buckland, and Guy Berryman.
