Oren Ambarchi & John Tilbury, Cafe OTO, 3 September 2012

Oren Ambarchi - guitar, electronics
John Tilbury - piano

This is a somewhat flawed recording.  Based on previous Ambarchi performances, I initially set the mic to low gain.  But here he was keeping the volume at a level compatible with Tilbury's piano.
The performance started VERY quietly and didn't get much louder.  So I successively increased the level to medium then high, unfortunately introducing some mic scraping into the recording.  Recording quiet source material at high gain also captures a lot of unwanted noise.
(Yes I know I should invest in a lavalier mic).

(The date was 3 September, but some of the files are mislabelled 5 September.)

It looks like this session now has an official release
