Below are some photos of my old studio, The Ballroom. It was an actual, unused ballroom I converted into a recording space, located in a tiny and charming village outside of Berlin in the Brandenburg countryside and former German Democratic Republic, called Bergsdorf.
This magic room was mine for less than a year, but I did manage to produce two different records in it. An upcoming Carpet of Horses record, as well as Ishaq’s fantastic 2015 album Remedies. Check my blog to see some documentation of these recording sessions.
Both records were made using all-natural reverb from this immense and acoustically perfect space. The sounds were very special and very unique, and, for better or worse, would be impossible to replicate.
