When a musician wants to either share a composition with others or sell it for monetary gain, they typically would go to a recording studio to have their music recorded and mastered for distribution. Within the past decade many artists have gained the ability to record and mix in their own home, and many are taking advantage of this strategy not only to save money but to have more control over the recording process as a whole. This is causing an overall downward trend in the number of what is traditionally referred to as recording artists, those who use professionally built studios usually supplied by a recording label, and instead causing a massive rise in independently recording artists. This project addresses architectural acoustic problems in these independent spaces.
