How did I come to this?
Well, my wife is coming off of this medicine that helps her sleep, and she’s having a hell of a time catching z’s at the moment, so I’m spending a few days sleeping on an extra mattress that i’ve laid across the floor in my studio while she adjusts.
Last night I was in there, (ok so i was also kind of stoned…) and I was on the bed messing around with a couple of projects i’ve been working on. And well… it was just vibing pretty hard for me.
For one thing, being on the floor just feels cool. More laid back and fun. Not like I’m doing work or something.
Also, I just liked the sound of it. I’ve always hated the sound of having nearfield monitors up in my face. It just doesn’t sound like any other situation that I listen in. I like to hear the sound disperse a bit. My studio has some bass traps I made in the corners and a couple of other places so it’s half way decently treated. plus I feel that, sense i’m sitting on a thick memory foam mattress, it’s almost like i’m sitting on another bass trap, which perhaps helps in preventing reflections coming from behind me.
I made my first tracks ever on the floor of my first shitty apartment, on my granddad’s old HP work desktop. So maybe I’m just getting sentimental. Who knows.
Anyone want to try and talk me out of it before i got fuck up my studio?
