The Quietest Place on the Planet & The World's First Digital Recording Studio (Southwest)


Adult Enrichment / Trips, Tours & Special Events -
Adult Enrichment Winter 2023

Orfield Laboratories built an anechoic chamber that is so quiet that no-one can bear to be inside for more than 45 minutes. Join us as we tour the room that the Guinness Book Of World Records deemed the quietest place on earth – tests measured background noise in the chamber as -9.4 dBA.  This space is also home to Sound 80, the world's first digital recording studio and the site for recordings by artists such as • Bob Dylan • Dave Brubeck • Flamin' Ohs • Michael Johnson • Leo Kottke • Lipps Inc., Funkytown  • Prince, demos • Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra • Cat Stevens, Izitso, 1977.  (Regular tour price is $200/person). Meet at Orfield Labs located at 2709 East 25th Street, Minneapolis, MN. Masks optional if you have been vaccinated.

If class is full, please enroll for the waitlist. We will contact you if a space becomes available.
