TheSixtySix were in the rehearsal studio on 3rd August recording some videos. We made use of a cheap turntable (as sometimes used in shop window displays) to mount a camera and capture close-up action of each band member throughout the performances.
This was all a bit of an experiment, and we had a few technical hiccups – like the camera “going to sleep” on us! – but we’re pretty pleased with the results overall. We managed to capture some nice takes of two of the newer songs in the set: “Trouble” by Taylor Swift and “Foolish Woman Blues” by Janis Joplin (see videos below).
Video capture from Canon G1X. Audio capture with Zoom R16. Microphones: drums – sE Electronics 2200a II; vocals – Shure SM58; Guitar – SM57; Bass – SM57; Keys – direct input. We used iMovie and GarageBand for the video and audio editing.
