Karim heads up Abbey Road Studios’ music tech incubator, Abbey Road Red, and also feeds into the wider innovation initiatives at the studios. At Red we are striving to build on more than 88 years of innovation history at the studios from the creation of stereo and Automatic Double Tracking to the blueprint for the modern recording console and much more.
We want to work with amazing founders and help usher in the next set of universally adopted technologies in the music business, the same way our predecessors did.
Our start-ups span the music tech gamut from creation and production to logistics, distribution, marketing, consumption and more. We’re exploring intelligent instruments; AI processes; the generative and adaptive music ecosystem; lyric experiences; audiovisual reproduction; distribution, analytics and logistics platforms, spatial audio and much more.
