Smiling Gecko Educational Campus


What do musician Jan SEVEN Dettyler, actress Isabel Karajan and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Ballet of Cambodia have in common? They are all among the multi-talented artists who will take to the stage at The Gong for our grand opening.

We hope that the (sound) waves we create with the opening will spread like a carpet across Cambodia. How wonderful it would be if this culturally shattered country could reclaim its rich past before it is too late. There are still a few people who remember the time before the Khmer regime. But they are fewer and fewer. The loss would be felt across Southeast Asia.

We are ready to change that: The truly beautiful building by atelier oï houses a multifunctional auditorium for up to 140 people and the top-of-the-range Sonic Studios. In addition to modern music, traditional and even classical music can be recorded here.

By the way, Philipp Schweidler from the Department of Noise and his team gave us excellent support in building and equipping the studio, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them very much. You guys are great.

If you want to come to the grand opening in June, make sure you book a room at the Farmhouse Resort now. Our hotel manager Daniel Ruprecht is looking forward to your enquiries. And more about bookings.

If you want to have a quick look at the centre before you go, there are already two websites in English. One for the Gong and one for the recording studio. We will be running the latter commercially and hope to have our first bookings from national and international artists by the end of the year. We are confident that they will appreciate the unique atmosphere of the Smiling Gecko Campus and the amenities of the Farmhouse Resort nearby.
