THE FARMHOUSE

The Casamurada placed in Banyeres del Penedès (tarragona) is a strengthened farmhouse of the XIIth century. His tower of defense presides at this medieval building. Both the tower and the house are done with Rammed earth, typical of these times. The farmhouse is surrounded by a wall of stone. Inside the set there is the main house, the wine cellar and a church of The XVIIIth century

THE STUDIO

In 2007, Jesus Rovira, member and composer of Lax'n' busto, decides to transform this farmhouse into a recording studio, respecting at all time the elements of the former building. It is a question of combining the acústic of a construction of the 12th century with the most modern musical technology. The studio has been done in the former wine cellar, where there is the base of the tower of defense. The high ceilings, the walls of stone and the space turn the casamurada into a studio with an identity and very typical sound. The fact of being able to lodge at the same study helps to create the atmosphere necessary to concentrate and to enjoy the recording. To record in The Casamurada is to « live » the record
