Recording and Mastering


We started with a plan to build a room that used regional materials to give it a sound that reflects Vancouver Island. The difussion walls were built using local river rock to make the space sound larger. One side of the room is treated with western red and yellow cedar, and where the drums sit are vertical cedar offcuts on a backing of hemp burlap. Behind the fabric treatments and a wall quilt made by Doug's mother are bass traps to tame the lo-mid frequency accents inherent in a room this size. To maximize the floor to ceiling height the concrete floor was etched, stained in a marble pattern and sealed. The end result is a warm, inviting and great sounding room to create in!
