Featured Workspace: Kontramax

by posted in Community
Jan 17

This has to be the closest you can get to working in a mancave. It’s the workspace of ActiveDen/AudioJungle/GraphicRiver/3DOcean author Kontramax. The soundproofing material he has used has turned his wall into a cave wall.

This room contains something to inspire just about every type of artist. He has musical instruments, a great keyboard, a small mixer, nice monitor speakers and a bass amp. There are several computers with more than enough monitors, and a fantastic graphics tablet. There are knick-knacks galore, and even a small telescope. And the vibe of the room is fantastic. I wonder if he ever leaves?

Here’s a wider shot. That wall looks great, the light shades match, and it looks like there is plenty of cool stuff under the desk, too.

A serious and versatile bass player!

And even the views out of his window are inspiring. Out of one window there is a river, fountain and rainbow, and out of the other a nice sunrise (or sunset).

    Will, with googletranslator I try to explain)) There 3 sacks with ordinary building gypsum-based plaster (stucco). Stirred with water until a dense consistency and inflicted with various sized spatulas. Then paint with sponge in several layers – the bottom is darker, the upper lighter. This is not seen on the photos, but there is 5 shades of colors in a whole.
