Acoustician and studio designer Eddie Veale has been honoured with an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University of West London.
The award recognises Veale’s contributions to the audio industry and his commitment to educating the next generation of acousticians and sound engineers.
Veale’s career started in 1960 working on noise control in passenger aircraft for De Havillandmoving to Advision.
A chance meeting with John Lennon resulted in Veale designing and building the UK’s first professional home recording studio at Tittenhurst Park where John recorded his legendary Imagine album, and which Eddie worked on.
As one of the UK’s most influential studio designers, Veale is responsible for the private studios of George Harrison, Gus Dudgeon, Eric Clapton, Mike Oldfield and many others.
Veale was a speaker at the most recent PSNPresents, which was held in central London on Tuesday 6 June.
