In this episode of Sound Design Live I talk musical artist Ozark Henry about his new album Paramount recorded in Aura3d. We discuss the challenges and benefits of live recording, being faithful to the artist’s vision in your mix, and the one thing Henry wishes more sound engineers would do on every show.
- How did you get your first paying gig in show business?
- We have all had the experience of hearing a great live band, and then being disappointed by their album. Honestly, this is why we love working in live sound. But why is it so hard to capture the same energy and charisma of a live experience on a recording?
- Let’s talk about Auro3D for a second. Could you explain why the extra 4 speakers higher up are so important?
- Tell me about the recording process. Did you just hang 9 mics above the orchestra? How do you decide what sounds go to what speakers to create the experience you’re going for?
- How did you meet your sound engineer? What do you like about them?
- What’s something that you wish all sound engineers would do or stop doing that would improve audio quality or show production?
