Recording Acoustic Ukelele

DSU Student Paul Schipper recorded Jeremy Dougherty singing the song, Trouble, by the band Never Shout Never.  Paul learned a lot about mic'ing a relatively unique instrument like the ukelele and how to best capture a live acoustic performance.  He ended up with a great-sounding mix!

Live Sound at the Brickhouse Bash

Dialing in the mix while Paul makes a recording
Last night, (Friday, Oct. 8) several students and I ran live sound for the "Brickhouse Bash" event in downtown Madison.  The musicians were Jack Rollins and "The Sewer Rats" who played rootsy folk music and blues-inspired rock music, respectively.  The event was hosted by the Madison Area Arts Council, who also presented an art show.  The event provided the community with a fun place to spend a Friday night on a beautiful Fall evening.
