Musician Asha Mevlana raises the roof with a house sized amplifier
Raise the roof with a house sized amplifier!
While home sound technology is leaning towards small and wireless, one home in Arkansas is going big, bold and loud, with the power to pump music built into its infrastructure.
Who better to own an “amplified” house than a musician?
Asha Mevlana is an electric violinist who travels the world with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and her amplified house was designed by Brian Crabb of Viva Collective.
The L-shaped house is comprised of two separate structures, one of which is a 120 square foot trailer that has been soundproofed with recycled denim.
Not only does it look like an amplifier, it literally is an amplifier, on a house-scale; and the deck joining the structures can double up as a stage.
Raise the roof!
The mobile “amplified” home doubles as a recording studio, rehearsal space and a guest room.
The best feature of the portable trailer is that it acts like a pre-amp; meaning if you plug instruments in, sound exits through the front speakers.
In short, it’s a buskers dream! You can travel anywhere and have music blaring at your will.
Asha’s plan for the future involves a music festival called ‘Fayetteville Amplified Music Festival’ which will bring in musicians from all over the country.
An open-air home concert, if you will.
Asha Mevlan’s ‘amplified’ house was featured on the show “Tiny House Nation.”
A mobile house-sized amplifier sounds like the homiest experience for your ears.
