The Process Room was responsible for stenciling, typesetting and engraving music in a process which became universally known as the "Halstan Process", a unique stencil method of generating music images. As in most industries, technology moves forward and this process became largely obsolete in the early 1990's but our former colleagues have kept in touch over the following years, leading to this reunion.
