Rick Harte of Mission of Burma, a punk band, talked about how they recorded their music, in "EQ," a magazine about recording music.

"The band was very loud at this point. Not Blue Cheer loud, but loud, I wanted an environment where these tones could be recorded and where the ambient information would be available, so the idea was to record the room and to record the band, and the way to do this was in a big, accurate room."

So find yourself what is, for you, an accurate room, big as fits, be you in detail and loud as you want. Add yourself to the planetary ambience.
