It’s time for a blog post again and as I discovered my ‘recording’ category, which I created the first time I was using my wp-theme, I will give you an insight in one of my latest and probably most awkward recording sessions. For Metronome UK I am taking part in a pitch right now, unfortunately I am not allowed to tell you any details except it involved ‘soda fountains’ and creating music out of these more or less characteristic sounds. First thing I did (obviously) was to call one of the leading fast food restaurant chains to ask if I could come around in the morning to record these liquids. And what a surprise, I got absolutely rejected.. Nevermind I thought and just drove there in the morning armed with my pocket recorder and my friend and colleague Chris. I bought two small drinks – refilling included – and recorded the shit out of the soda fountain in stealth mode. All in all it was quite a ninja experience and we both felt sick after drinking loads of coke and sprite. I then went to another pub who gave me permission to record there machine with a proper mic (MKH 8040) and my Sound Devices recorder. Obviously the recording was way better in quality but therefore I missed the ninja/stealth aspect.
I will definitely keep you posted about the progress of the pitch and will post the results once it is done. Pff, pff, pssssst..
