What happens when you get a bunch of student recording engineers in a room with a band and a road case full of Shure mics?
Passion. Vision. Debates. Eye-rolling. Sleep deprivation. Laughter. Shenanigans.
Don’t believe me? Well. I have proof. Video proof.
I love hearing creative people think out loud, wrestling with the possibilities and limitations. So, my favorite part of this year’s first round of Fantastic Scholastic Recording Competition video diaries is watching the teams take the essence of a song and imagine the best instrumentation and recording setup for it. It’s also fun to see some of the incredible work spaces that are available to the students in their programs. We’re not the only ones with a lava lamp in our recording studio, apparently. And of course, how could I forget the Great Shure Mic Toss? (University of Denver, I’m looking at you.)
