Technical issues recording an orchestra
« on: December 01, 2010, 11:27:19 am »

So tonight i am supposed to be recording an orchestra playing along with a 5 piece jazz band.
I thought I had it all worked out but a detail emerged this week that I cannot deal with.

Unfortunately this has led to the cancellation of tonight's performance.
I was really looking forward to this and to be frank, really needed the work.

...you were recording them outdoors...?

Wink

My mum was supposed to be flying over from your side of the pond today, but can't make it, due to a late illness. -She was REALLY looking forward to spending the next few weeks in Florida instead of up to her armpits in snow... -Although it certainly LOOKS pretty!

The last few weeks I've been recording the local Philharmonic quite a bit. -I'm enjoying it a lot, although the room I'm working in sounds a little like it's full of snow at times. (I could easily use another second RT60!)

Nassau it aint.

Decision was the correct one. The orchestra was 40 piece, plus band and tech staff then anticipated audience of 150ish.

Roads here are really bad and any journeys are taking a lot longer than usual. Primarily due to lorries jack knifing.

Articulated lorries skidding and 'folding shut' like a penknife.



I sympathise, Keith. I have to go to London tomorrow and it's looking doubtful. Bugger.

Oh!

I've seen that happen in front of me! Scary stuff.

Agreed. Better stay home.

We are about that and more. I measured at least 65cm = 25"
Worse still, the layers of snow fall are compacting, some freezing solid and forming ridges on the roads. It is like trying to cross rail tracks.

I had to walk two miles in it yesterday from work, to get my daughter from school as it was shutting.

Leeds was gridlocked pretty quickly as people still insisted on taking shortcuts through the narrow, steep local roads.

You notice muscles you never knew you had the next day!

Don't ever remember snow in this quantity this early before.

Terry, does it amuse the hell out of you to report on such weather happenings while your living in the Bahamas? I have to admit that I would feel a jolt of schadenfreude all through me while I walked a warm sandy beach. Then I would pick a piece of fresh fruit from a tree in my yard and eat it.

HEY NOW...

We had weather issues here as well, not immune to that.

It clouded over this morning, and was a bit windy.  Temp dropped to probably under 80F.









Then it cleared up again...

Dropped to -13c by 11pm here last night.
By that stage breathing gets a bit funny feeling.
Last year I found below -17c it started to hurt the nose when taking a breath.

Darn... -It's getting near time for the Avocado tree outside Terry's house to bear fruit, unless I'm much mistaken!

I have to say, it's distinctly chilly round here. -A couple of degrees lower, and I'll have to start wearing SOCKS!

HA!  I am eating fresh perfect avocados every day now in the salad. We have so many we can't possibly eat them all.

Plus, two more trees started bearing this year, yikes.


Clifford brought by seven tomato plants (already with fruit growing) last weekend, so those are now shooting up as well.

Hope it doesn't snow...
