Space For Music
I've recently discovered a love for recording acoustic instruments in cool spaces.
I'm on the hunt for rooms, halls, sanctuaries, studios, and any place that is...
So far I've recorded horn, trumpet, flute, cello, and bells. I've done this in two different churches and an auditorium. Every space provides different acoustics and enhances different instruments' qualities. That's why even though I've been very happy with these places, it doesn't hurt to collect more.
You have an awesome space, don't you? I would LOVE to record in it. The echos and reverbs of amazing spaces like yours are what gives character to recordings, and I would really appreciate the opportunity to imprint that character on one of my next songs.
- * So, what is a "big" space? It really depends, but a high ceiling is ideal. The smallest "big" room for recording might be around 10' high x 16' wide x 26' long. Even better would be 15' tall x 24' wide x 39' long. The bigger the better. Basically a space that is bigger than a 3-car garage is ideal.
- ** How quiet is "very quiet?" If you stand in the center of the room, what do you hear? If you can't identify any sounds except quiet ambience, it's probably perfect.
- *** It can get loud. Like trumpets, for example. Would that disrupt anyone in/near your space?
- **** I usually bring a photographer with me, plus a musician or two.
- ***** I respect your time, and I'm happy to pay. However, this is all not-for-profit, so I really appreciate tiny budgets.
