Film your professional music video in a beautiful, safe and inspiring project studio in nature outside Lisbon
The philosophy at the Groove House has to do with cultivating effortless mastery in music, which is about going beyond a state of actively playing, and instead letting the music flow through you with passive observation. As a way of having a clear mind while playing or recording, we understand the importance of having a clutter-free and relaxing environment.
Scientists say that when we’re fully immersed in the Flow/Zone/Groove, a certain part of the brain (prefrontal cortex) shuts down. This bit partly deals with self control and decision-making. Calming it down helps you to think outside the box and ‘loosen the rules’, which is the key to creativity. It’s the reason why so many great ideas in history have come from quietening the mind.
The focus will be on effortlessly creating an inspiring music video of your band that can be shared with the world. There are two music rooms at the Groove House – the Sunset Lounge (with inspiring views), and the Sacred Bassment directly underneath. The rooms
are fully linked with balanced audio cables, while hidden inputs around each room connect to a 32-channel wireless digital mixer downstairs. This means that the setup is pretty much ready to record professionally without going through the flow-breaking hassle of wiring things up. We get the importance of having a clutter-free environment to relax, so all 350 meters of wires are hidden underground.
We have a range of bedrooms here, from en suite private rooms to a dorm with six beds, each with curtains for complete privacy. The Sunset Lounge is an unplugged music room for acoustic instruments with inspiring views and cosy fireplace to keep nice and warm over the winter. The ‘Sacred Bassment’ is for plugged-in instruments, and the design is such that you don’t need to worry about playing too loud to let those creative juices flow at night. Our focus on sustainability spreads from the garden to the house, all of which is heated entirely using the energy from the sun.
We offer various options of recording to best suit your needs.
