Current: v3 [2020–2021]


The name Lichter Raum refers to a room full of brightness; a place that seems most suitable for creative tasks or reading. A deliberate choice – my studio work was bound to daytime in 2006. The night was spent on research or listening to music.
Back in 2006 Lichter Raum was merely a credit on releases. To call it a home studio would have been an exaggeration. A computer tower and a midprice set of headphones was my entry into music production then.

In 2008 I was able to upgrade the studio to v2. A digital audio recorder was bought and improved the sonic quality to large degree. The next studio purchases involved flea market synthesizers and samplers like the Casio SK-1. Still, the whole equipment could be placed on a regular-sized desk. A small size apparatus. For many years I was sharing my desk between office papers and studio equipment.

In 2020 (and with the advantage of an own house with plenty of room) the current incarnation of Lichter Raum was build. My husband build the furniture for the existing equipment; we left extra space, so more systems and updates could find a place as well. Still, the studio resembles it’s first stage quite obviously – everything is in reach of hand. When sitting I am surrounded by the periphery and hardware on left and right.

On the opposite side of the room a cosy place with book table and chairs inviting for breaks and listening sessions.
