The Studio

Suono is the brainchild of Coti K., here is what he has to say about it:
“When I sat down to think about my ideal studio, I made a list of all the things I would like it to be, and also of what to avoid. After having worked for decades in both “conventional” studios and more ad-hoc project spaces, I came to appreciate the relaxedness and directness of home studios and rehearsal spaces, where everyone involved is usually in the same room, with no glass walls impeding the communication between engineer, producer and musicians. I also needed to have natural light, as a dark, artificially lit room, is not my idea of a creative space where I would like to spend too many hours in.

The other important factors were mobility and modularity: in present days, where the whole recording gear could very well sum up to a computer, a sound card, some preamps and a pair of speakers, why should it all be in a fixed spot in the studio, would it not be nicer if it could be able to move around depending on each recording session’s needs? and what about putting everything on wheels, including panels, so the acoustics can be changed as needed? All of these thoughts gave birth to what Suono is.
