The name Lichter Raum refers to a room full of brightness; a place suitable for most creative tasks.
The title was a deliberate choice in the summer of 2006 – my studio work was bound to daytime while the night was spent on research and listening sessions. Around that time ›Lichter Raum‹ [v1] was just a windows computer tower plus a midprice set of headphones – a low-budget entry into music production then.

In 2008 I was able to upgrade the studio to [v2]. A digital audio recorder improved the sound quality of sources. Flea market synthesizers and cheap Casio samplers gave me further possibilities to manipulate sounds. Still the whole equipment could be placed on a regular-sized desk – a small size apparatus. For many years I was creating space for music between office papers and studio equipment.

In 2020 (and with the advantage of an house with plenty of rooms) the most sophisticated incarnation of ›Lichter Raum‹ saw the light of day [v3]. Proper furniture for equipment was build; extra space was left in the planning to expand with future systems and updates. The studio resembles a square – everything in reach of hand. While sitting I am surrounded by periphery and hardware to the left, right and front. On the opposite side of the room a cosy place with book table and lounge chairs invites for breaks and listening sessions.

In the summer of 2022 mostly small technical updated were made for [v4]. A modular desk was installed between the monitor system. The computer/DAW sits to the right now. This enables for live improvisation plus mastering without the need to switch places.

In spring and autumn 2023 the studio underwent revisions for [v5]. The single modular cases were replaced and build into an stackable wall-rack for easier access and space saving. The DAW/computer was settled between the monitor system which received proper stands.

In January 2024 further modifications led to [v6]. The single modular cases were replaced by a customised case with some hardware rearranged next to the modular rack. This helped to open up the room with its limited space and narrowness to its final form.
