For a month now I’ve moved into a new studio. The previous one had been a spacious room occupied by at most 18 people, and while fortunately (and not inevitably) it’s always been pleasant company, a couple of times the vibes haven’t been the ones in favour of productive work. A lot depended on how solidly you could anchor yourself to your little space, preferably shielded by a wall or two. Most of them had bad light of some sort and each had terrible acoustics, though anyway, most of the HGB is built in such a way that you cannot understand what someone’s saying from three metres away.
Now we’re six people with much more space per capita. There is less wallspace but that just means going for a more deliberate selection of what to hang and what to store elsewhere.
As for the work vibes – they’re downright fantastic, except that we waste a lot of time gloating about how our studio’s surely the best room in Leipzig at least if not far beyond the city even. Otherwise we’re getting lots of stuff done.
