OT: Farewell to Vincent van Haaff, an artist of spaces, a musician for musicians

Vincent's art was shaping music with surfaces and physics, designing elegant studio rooms in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, San Francisco, Vancouver, Las Vegas, Toronto, and several amazing facilities in Japan. He designed studio complexes, control rooms, mastering suites, writing studios, mix rooms and post-production rooms for audio, video, foley, and layback.

Vincent was an artist who has worked with and consulted for producers, engineers, singers, writers, and musicians whose names are pretty much universally renowned and those whose work engineering geeks thrill to analyze. His designs include A&M Studios, Conway Recording, The Village Recorder, Music Grinder, Capital Records Studio C Mix Room, West Side Sound, Brooklyn Studios, Madhatter Studios, Rusk Sound, Skip Saylor Recording, Sony Music Studios Santa Monica, Soundcastle Recording, Post-Logic, 525 Post Production, and the great extension at Sony Music Studios New York, Studio and Mix D.

Everyone here has heard music that was created in rooms Vincent created. He and his company, Waterland Design, leave a legacy.

For Vincent, a recording studio or post facility is more than just a space in which we record or mix a project. "It is a carefully crafted environment in which we witness the creation of sonic art."

Vincent believed firmly in Einstein’s saying: “Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” He was a generous, optimistic spirit who found joy in design, art, music, and his own curiosity and invention, and always believed that the best would unfold.

Vincent died at home this weekend. He touched so many in his work and his life that there are a lot of broken hearts.

Here is one of many interviews he gave on studio design and recording:

Peace be on you, Vincent.

Love and strength to all those who need it, after the loss of such a remarkable man,
who meant so much to many.

Just as long as the guitar plays, let it steal your heart away

The remembrance in Mix Magazine sounds like a fitting tribute to Vincent, who was clearly a very creative talent who'll be sorely missed by his family, friends and the world. All sympathies to his loved ones and those who were fortunate to know and work with him. RIP, Vincent.
