The Recording and Broadcast Studio
This is a very special and sacred place for me.
It is the place where I create all my original music and reverse engineer/recreate all the music I use in the background when I perform live in a venue or live on a YouTube LiveStream.
This is place is a holiday, a secret garden, an escape, but also a place where many, many hours of hard work and self discovery happen. Talent/clumsiness, skill/practice, gifts/curses, success/failure all occupy the same space and time here. It is a place where I have had many beautiful nights (since 2020...) with close friends filling the room and others watching live from all over the planet. I can't tell you how amazing that is. It is also a place where I am alone alot. Hours and hours and hours of solitude from which I never tire.
