TRENCH LIFE | PHOTO SET | MONKEY TRENCH STUDIOS | BREMERTON | WASHINGTON | USA
I am grateful to have a space I can just live in. Be in. That's my studio, Monkey Trench Studios. It's got all the recording gear and band gear and skeletons of old used up, beat up gear. But I just like the empty spaces. The sounds bouncing off the wood and plaster. The creak of the stairs as you walk up into the control room. An imperfect place with a lot of character scars. A broken tile, holes in the fence. This is my second home, my office, my war room. In a lot of ways it's my muse. This house that may or may not be haunted by a young man with no hope left to live for and no more use for school. I can walk around with my guitar and write songs, practice, go over parts. I don't have to stay in one room. I find myself setting up my recording station all over the house. It's really 3 studios in 1. But this wasn't meant to be a technical description of the gear or studio attributes so I'll stop there. This studio for me is like a sanctuary from the craziness but at the very same time the entrance to madness. And yet, it's just a building. Wood, concrete, steel. Yes it's possible to be inspired anywhere you are, it's just more amazing at the Trench.
We've been doing a ton of upgrades in the studio lately. It's up and running really nicely now. I've got a full time engineer to take care of the clients. He was my first intern and has worked his way into a job! You can here more about that on episode #106 of the podcast.
