Happy New Ear! While I finish up my studio, I’m working on mixes for Ho Etsu from a couple of live recordings I did just before Christmas. Both shows were shot by Joe Lim, whose eye exceeds my ear, so we’re bashing out a bunch of really nice videos. While I was stoked with the Rotations CD we did last year, taiko is such a visual art, I knew it was lacking. It’s so great to finally get some stuff out there that represents their energy with visuals as well. Here’s Lion Chant from the ultra intimate show they did at Hideout. They have an X32 there so it was really easy to capture the live audio, but the main challenge was moving the mics around, as each song has a different set up and stage space was so limited.
