Recording sound effects at MOSI

Excellent day out at the Museum of Science and Industry recording sound effects for an upcoming project.

Needed a bunch of hissing and clanking of heavy machinery so asked the staff to direct us to “stuff that makes a lot of noise”. We were sent to “The Power Room”, which contains some of the most fantastically absurd-looking machines I’ve ever seen in my life.

This particular colossus, via a complex system of enormous gears and pulleys culminated in a small steel peg hammering up and down. Not quite sure what it does. My colleague speculated that it might be history’s most committed hole-punch.

 

Mobile Studio Progress

Everything cased up and ready for testing. Currently setting up some free recording sessions to work out any minor issues. Full list of what’s in here on my Gear List page. But basically, 14 mics, portable acoustic treatment, 24 track digital recorder, 24 channel mixer, 8 output headphone amp, etc, and blah, and all kinds of other stuff that will turn your garage into Abbey Road for the day (resemblance to Abbey Road not guaranteed).

The idea is that I can come and get results for you even in fairly acoustically dodgy rooms. Why go to a studio to feel uncomfortable while an indifferent engineer sneers at your songs? Let me come to your place and help you make something beautiful in the place you play your best.
