Cohere Bandwidth and The Sound of Music

In re: “The Sound of Music” title … for those of you that took a wrong turn at Austria, you might wanna hold up for a second. We’re talking about the sound of music in terms of acoustics and Cohere Bandwidth, our presently-being-blueprinted shared rehearsal space. And while we do have a Julie, we don’t have Julie Andrews. Also, there are currently zero nuns involved with this project.

What we have instead is: an engineer. An architectural acoustic engineer with a rock star name. And we are SO RELIEVED to bask in the warmth of his expertise.

Meet Mick:

Angel and Mick poring over the plans ... "in concert" (hey, that's Angel's pun, not mine, so direct any eye rolling her way)

Mick works for D.L. Adams Associates, and pretty much the minute he walked into our lives with his tape measure and his reading glasses and his ability to immediately answer questions about things like green glue, we felt sure we were in the presence of genius. Mick knows what he’s talking about. Mick sent us DRAWINGS. Mick is going to make sure we don’t make some horrible mistake out of acoustic ignorance that causes our neighbors at The Downtown Artery to curse us due to our insufferable crash-bang-booming at all hours of the day and night. So huzzah.

A Lavatory in the Laboratory
Something else to celebrate: our PLANS include a CAN. Yes, friends and musicians, that’s a working toilet with running water and everything, right there in black and white. Mick even included an armchair in the waiting area. He shares our crazy idea that musicians should be afforded some, oh, you know … amenities.

The Can @ Cohere Bandwidth

Some of you may have already seen this very rendering of The Can @ Cohere Bandwidth because a) you are Mick or b) you are Alana, who is our frame of reference for ceiling height standards (“must be able to accommodate the playing of viola STANDING UP at full bow extension, while wearing heels”) or c) you are following Cohere Bandwidth on Instagram. Oh hey, you should follow @coherebandwidth on #instagram you guys! We’re going to start sharing snippets of the space as it progresses. Here’s one we haven’t posted yet of some actual tools we found already on the shelf in the warehouse space where Cohere Bandwidth will live.

Tools for Cohere Bandwidth

They all look pretty useful so we might ask if we can keep them.

If that’s not enticing enough, we’ve got prizes for you if you interact with us on Instagram! Take a picture of yourself at your current band practice space, tag or mention @coherebandwidth, use the hashtag #practiselfie, and we’ll pick a winner in the next two weeks. What do you win? Well … what do you want? We’ll entertain your suggestions (which may not be the same as fulfilling them, but you never know unless you ask, so, yeah). Talk to us! Through pictures or even … videos. Because you know how we love SOUND.

Our blog is pretty awesome.
