Multifunctionality: Writing, rehearsing, recording and performing
The Music Lounge is the heart of Music Writing Place because it is the main living room – there is a second living room in the villa – and deploys many musical functions. With its 70 square meters, it is huge. It offers a fabulous view on the surrounding country side. There is a music set up that consists of a small PA, a 16-channel live mixer, microphones, a bass guitar, two guitars and two keyboards. Furthermore, it consists of the baby Grand Piano surrounded by more microphones and several percussion instruments. The Inspiration Package-Instruments are at your disposal in the Music Lounge. Please also check our list of Instrument Specials and Rentals.
Apart from being a cosy living room, the lounge has 4 musical functions: Firstly, it is the Music Writing Space of Music Writing Place. Inspiration Package and Allin Premium Package guests can spend the whole week here, writing songs. You can make yourself at home behind the baby grand and develop new material.
Secondly, it is a place for rehearsing. On arrival, you pick an instruments and start playing! The Music Lounge is all set to plug in and play. During your stay, the ambience of the Music Lounge gives you the chance to play when and anytime you feel like it, maintaining your musical flow. The monitors and the live mixer allow you to rehearse as a group.
A third function is the live room function. Here you can record your music, because there is a cable connection with the control room in the recording studio. Many configurations are possible: In a solo writing session you can move from one instrument to another, figuring out what sound suits your musical idea and record it. You can record demo’s with the band. Our audio technician will help you out. Please bring your own engineer for the bulk of the recordings.
The fourth function of the Lounge is that of performing. The set up with PA enables you to perform a small inhouse gig.
You can get that perfect mix of inspiration and relaxation in the Music Lounge, because you can walk out onto the terrace, have a swim in the adjacent pool or stroll into the surrounding hills. Enjoy yourself!
Feature: You can book our extra Writing Room set up for the Music Lounge. It consists of a Grand Piano, a DAW and a studio furniture piece for 3 people to work as a team on musical projects.
