Do you name your recording studio?

I’m almost finished putting together my next recording studio. The new space has a huge wall of windows. In these summer months it feels like the sun is five feet away. I installed huge grey opaque curtains. They are quite dramatic in the all white room. It’s almost like if I pull them back there will be an audience sitting there waiting for me to play. It got me thinking that I should name this studio “The Grey Curtain”. So here’s my question: Do you name your recording studios?

“Complementary colors are defined to mix to grey, either additively or subtractively, and many color models place complements opposite each other in a color wheel. To produce grey in RGB displays, the R, G, and B primary light sources are combined in proportions equal to that of the white point. In four-color printing, greys are produced either by the black channel, or by an approximately equal combination of CMY primaries. Images which consist wholly of neutral colors are called monochrome, black-and-white or greyscale.” – Wikipedia

  3. Mine is called “Santa Maria Studios” due to a statue of this nice girl standing just left of my left monitor… not that original, I know…

  6. I call my home studio “Creative Consumption Studios” though I think “The Grey Curtain” sounds way cooler :)

  7. Perhaps not to everyone, but the word “Gray” has the connotation of boring, squarish to me.

    What about just “The Curtain”, or some synonym for gray:

    – Silver Curtain
    – Pearly Curtain
    – Ash Curtain
    – Charcoal Curtain
    – Slate Curtain
    etc.

    Or be paradoxical and call it “The Yellow Curtain”.

  8. When it was in my basement I used to call it Lower Level as a reference to the time I spent working on submarines. Now that it’s upstairs though I don’t have a clue what to call it.

  11. Thee Cassini Division. I named my studio after the famous gap in Saturn’s rings, but the other meaning of division as a distinct segment of a larger body makes me feel like it’s a part of a large heartless organization that has been overlooked by the corporate overlords so that I can tap into their resources yet still do what I want.

  12. Wait, is that a Mac Performa on the table?

  13. Interesting, I too call mine “The Dungeon”.

  14. The sign on the door reads “exploration”. I think of it as more of a lab than a studio. With the four 45U racks it looks like a control room from Earth vs The Flying Saucers.

    That’s an Akai s612! I have one of those next to the HP sine wave generators.
