What happens when heavy machinery is being used right outside your sound studio?

And your electricity goes off at the same time.

How would you cope?

Sometimes you’ve just gotta surrender to events.

As I write this, a massive digger is churning up my driveway.*

There’s also the occasional pneumatic drill.

It’s not so much the noise. It’s the vibration that’s the issue.

This is what it sounds like.

The electricity keeps getting turned off as the engineers fix a cable. It’s also snowing. This means we have little or no heating.

As you can imagine, it’s a right laugh.

This is in no way conducive to creating ideal working conditions here at the sound studio at Clarke Gables.

So how would you handle it?

Have a listen to my podcast WHO DO YOU THINK I AM? to find out how it all panned out. You can hear it here.

*At this point I’m very glad we didn’t go ahead with the block paving.
