Charlemagne Palestine, Oren Ambarchi - Café OTO - 3 April 2012

I had played safe tonight and set the mic to low gain.  Although the performance did get louder, it started out very quietly, just wet fingers on the rims of wine glasses.  It's about 16-17 minutes in before the volume increases noticeably.

BJ Nilsen, Oren Ambarchi, Daniel Menche - Cafe OTO - 2 April 2012

It can be very difficult to anticipate sound levels for electronic music.
And the Zoom H2 mic setting is a rather primitive three-position switch.
For both the Ambarchi and Menche sets, I had to drop the level part way through as things got louder than expected.
I have tried to balance this as best I can in the edit, but you will notice the switch.
If you think you could do a better job, leave a comment or contact me direct and I'll let you have a copy of the source file.

Fields of the Nephilim, Jordan Reyne, Shepherds Bush, 31 October 2012


Photos, such as they are.
I was way up in the third level and the handrail on the balcony was in the way.

Acid Mothers Temple, Hey Colossus, Corsica Studios, 22 October 2012

Sorry it's been a while since I posted anything here.  There is still plenty in the can.

Most of the titles are "unknown" but please leave a comment if you can add any.  There is some distortion on the louder passages i.e. most of it, but I don't think it's excessive.  I could have stood a bit further back, but being in the thick of it was part of the fun.
