Ara

Wow it’s been three years! The reason that I never released this track is because the band was not pleased with their playing, which is a shame. However it’s a good use of binaural so we are uploading it without any hype for those of you who also love binaural.

The panning effect used on the guitars was created by strapping the binaural head to an office chair and spinning it around.

Here is the other binaural recording I did, ‘Burst at the Seams’

I’d love to do more binaural recordings. I will hopefully have a chance to do another on in the future!

 

Binaural Recording 2013 Update

Hey audio fans!

For those of you who are waiting for the 2013 binaural recording. I an sorry to say that it has been delayed. I destroyed my headphones in the sheer excitement of mixing it and now I have to wait for my friend to fix them. I was pretty much finished with the mix too, all I need to do is master it. Shouldn’t be too much longer now and I am sorry for making you wait longer. It will be worth it!

Binaural Recording 2013

Binaural recording 2013 is around the corner and this year it’s going to be bigger than ever! Just you wait…

Until then have a listen to our last binaural recording. Wear headphones for the full 3D sound awesomeness.

Binaural recording is a way of capturing sound in its 3D environment. When you listen back to the recording on headphones or special cross-talk cancelled speakers it will sound like you’re right there in the room with the band. It’s pretty neat!

Second Hand Bones

My band’s new single Second Hand bones is available for free download here! Hope you enjoy it🙂

I had a lot of fun mixing this one and my good friend Oscar Gaona mastered it for us. And of course we recorded it at my work, The Sonic Factory. There’s a single launch happening at the Oxford Art Factory on the 15th of November in the Gallery Bar. The night is free so if you’re in Sydney come and check it out. Details are here.

We have another EP in the works which we recorded live which was rather interesting. Needless to say it’s gonna sound pretty raw and quite different from anything you’ve heard from us before so stay tuned! It’s going to be called Angry Music so you’ve been warned.

On a side note i’m starting to delve into the world of 3D modelling and animation. It’s totally different from what I do but i’m enjoying learning a new field. I may add some of what I’ve been working on to this site, we’ll see. I’ll still be an audio geek and i’m hoping to make another binaural recording when I can get a hold of Fritz! I’m even thinking of using binaural in a gaming context. It’s been done before but maybe I can put an interesting spin on it you’ll just have to wait and see…

Until then!

Live Recording with Polar Knights

NOTE: I think youtube is being weird and making this video a playlist so if you don’t see a video called Storey Street Sessions: Polar Knights – “Crumpets”  just hit the playlist button on the lower left of this video and find the Storey Street Sessions video. I apologise for this and I am trying to find a solution for it as you read!

Check out this video! I learned a lot from this recording as it’s the first live recording I’ve done on my own. I love the energy that comes from a band playing together rather than overdubs in a studio.

I plan to do more recording like this so be on the look out!

Let me know what you think of this one🙂

My New Workplace

Hey there!

I now work at The Sonic Factory in Belmore, Sydney. It’s got a great atmosphere and a great sound so if you ever need to record a song give us a call! We work on budgets so no project is too small, or too big. Here are some shots of the control room, we have an SL4000 E console and a slew of outboards and microphones.
