Here’s a short section of Michael Croswell’s ambient combination of french horn and sampled industrial sounds from his performance on Wednesday, February 18, 2009. This was the first “Nightlife” performance at Spark, and lots of really great music has happened since, so there is much more to come.
This is one of the first times I have used the Sony PCM D-50 to record a performance other than my own. What was nice about this instance is that the audience was very quiet. Micheal’s music was quite dynamic throughout his entire performance, but in very slow sweeping waves with few abrupt movements. This recording would not have been possible with a noisy audience.
