Back in 2015, my husband created an enclosed booth for me, made of moving blankets. Big improvement for me – and didn’t cost much, either. Five moving blankets and a couple sets of grommets probably cost a little over 100 bucks.
So, what’s been added or changed over the last couple of years? Just a few tweaks, really:
the straight-back dining room chair was switched out for a more comfy padded office chair; an iPad was added; the music stand was raised up to eye level – much better for the posture and the voice.
And what’s next? Probably just some more tweaks. Lately, I’ve been searching for a wooden bar stool to replace the padded office chair. Who knew it would be so difficult to find a simple bar stool? A fancy one? Easy. But a simple one? Not so much.
Recording booth 4.0 is looming out there on the horizon somewhere. That would be a dedicated recording space – whether it’s a booth or a converted closet, with four solid walls and ventilation, and room for a remote monitor, keyboard and mouse…well, a girl can dream, can’t she?
