The minimalist travel music setup.
I’ve tried a lot of different audio gear over the years and looking at this photo kind of surprises me to see how minimal my gear is these days. A few years ago before I started traveling full time I had a whole room full of all things audio and music.. KRK babies, electronic drum kit, hella nice keyboard, guitar, 8pre interface, heaps of microphones, maschine. And yet somehow I’m way happier and more productive and creative with this tiny bit of gear than I ever was with all the toys imaginable. I really miss having proper monitors sometimes but other than that I enjoy the freedom that having only these few things gives me. If it was easy to travel with heaps of gear, yah I probably would have a lot more. I LOVE playing around with all the equipment but the second I consider going to the airport with it, it instantly becomes a nightmare. So it’s a bit of a trade off for me. And for now I choose to be wild and untethered. Ultimate freedom for unfiltered adventure. That is my dream life at the moment.
Although I know if I ever settled down in one place for a while (which is unlikely) the first thing on the list = puppy. All the gear in the world could wait. Puppies are everything.
PS been wanting to take this photo for a while, stoked to finally have the wood to pull it off. Wood is so the most beautiful and essential component in these kinds of photos 🌲
