I said I’d get some pics of the loft where I keep everything that has to do with music.
So here goes.
Please keep in mind that the pictures, having been shot with a wideangle lens, make the room look bigger than it is – all in all, it’s only 35 square meters (that’s around 375 square feet).
When I enter that room, there are two basses, one guitar and a MIDI keyboard begging for my attention. I thought it would be a good idea not to hide my instruments in a case or whatnot… I reckon that the fact that I see them may trigger me to pick one of them up and get some practice or noodling in.
- the partially visible desk in the lower right corner… that used to be the desk that was reserved for work stuff, and I have yet to clear that out after having been laid off.
- the pile of photog equipment and CDs to the left of the keyboard, for which I still have to find a good place.
Anyway – to the right of the Wall Of Instruments, you see a guest bed – that’s the place where my oldest grandson likes to sleep most when he’s staying over. Now that I’m recovering from the retroperitoneal fibrosis that landed me in hospital last December, I do regularly take my old-person-afternoon naps there as well.
This is my view of the stuff I use to listen to real music. Some Sony ES stuff, two floorstanding JMLabs Focal 716V’s which I am extremely happy with, and a media centre which holds most of the albums I bought.
And this is where I am currently seated. Practice amp next to the chair, the Zoom B1X Four in the windows sill, and the dual monitor setup of my workstation on the desk (the workstation itself is under the desk).
I know I would need a decent set of monitor speakers for on the desk, but that’s currently not extremely high on my priorities list, as I usually listen through the headphones anyway.
