This is my workspace.
Although I use plenty of music technology, my writing room¬†is set-up to have lots of space for good old-fashioned¬†paper.
It is as rich, bright and energetic as possible with my one small window. I used to like it darker but tastes change. I am no longer a fan of dark, gloomy studios for writing music.
Now I think the next iteration of my writing space will have lots of windows if possible, as long as there is nothing outside to take my mind away from my writing. Trees, I’d like if it was only trees on the other side of my windows…
I usually sketch on the big board in the back to various degrees of completion then bring it over to the smaller board where I do mockups and fix-ups and whatnots.
What I’d like to add next is a writing board on the desk that I can write more easily on. That would make writing the inevitable changes as I do my mockups more convenient. Right now I use the side of the desk. That works fine, but not as elegant.
This is not as barebones as John Williams’ workspace¬†but certainly less techno-heavy than Hans Zimmer’s studio.
