As mentioned in another thread re: snake management, I am moving into a new studio. <cue cheering crowd sound effect> The live room in the new place used to be the living room in a house. An unusual shape; not just a parallel-walled box. Walls are the usual painted sheetrock. I plan to cover them in something. I'm not referring to acoustic treatments like GIKs or RealTraps; not just yet. This phase comes before the GIKs or similar.
I want something to bring some atmosphere, visual interest, a catalyst to foster creativity, something vibey; that kind of thing. So far, I'm thinking something like reclaimed barnwood, reclaimed antique slate shingles; something in that realm. Perhaps both; maybe slate shingles on one or two walls; barnwood on the others. Or maybe one wall in clapboard siding; either painted or rough/unfinished. Once that phase is complete, then I can think about actual acoustic treatment vis a vis GIKs, etc....
So this phase is less about what to do for sound, as that can/will be addressed with acoustic treatments after this phase.
Has anyone else had this kind of thing wherein you're doing something visual for the wallls?. If so, what did you do? Again, my request is more about visuals and environment than what will sound best, as I can deal with that using GIKs if need be. Although a long wall of antique slate shingles would bring some diffusion and a great look as well.
Suggestions? Thoughts? Experiences? Anecdotes? Knock-knock jokes?
Again, many thanks in advance.
