Hello, everyone. I don't post a lot in this section, and maybe this thread would be better-suited for the Good News section, but I wanted to share an ongoing project I've been really excited about that I think you folks might have some interest in.
We've been doing a monthly concert series at my studio, Mad Oak, featuring local talent performing in front of an invite-only audience, multitracked and captured by an array of 3-5 cameras. The show is mixed live-to-2, and then we go back and revisit a favorite song or two to do a more detailed mix, which then gets sent to mastering (c/o the phenomenally-talented Jeff Lipton of Peerless Mastering) and finally, a video cut by local filmmaker Michael Gill of Circumvision.
We make the live-to-2 mix available the very same night of the show, and audience members can sign a mailing list to receive the show in its entirety via email the next day.
This is all done at no cost to anyone; it is 100% supported by the studio and the artists who donate their time and energy.
It's been a lot of fun for me as a music fan, and a great learning experience for me as an engineer: really learning the space, dealing with and eventually embracing the bleed; the excitement of a live-to-2 mix. It's proving to be great experience.
Anyway, we've finally amassed enough material to put together a YouTube channel, which I thought I would share here. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as we do!
