The main characteristics of prog rock are the extended use of synthesizers, organs, and sound-effects as well as complex rhythmic structures and instrumentation. Influenced by a wide range of genres, ranging from classical music to jazz and science fiction soundtracks, the epic arrangements are often breaking the boundaries of traditional rock music.

Avatar Studios is known for having one of the world’s finest acoustic environments for recording and has won several industry awards. Since its inception in the 1970s, it’s hosted bands and artists like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Journey, Kings of Leon and The Clash.

Between them, they have worked with artists covering the whole gamut of genres, from classic rock (Kiss, Meatloaf, Bruce Springsteen) to soul (Joss Stone, John Mayer) and modern pop (Beyoncé, Katy Perry).
