For Those Who Color Outside the Lines
Shooting pianos, miking chickens, recording bass (guitar, that is) on a submarine. These are some of the unusual recording techniques examined in the book, Recording Unhinged: Creative and Unconventional Music Recording Techniques (HL12722). Because we all like to “draw outside the lines,” this collection of Sylvia Massy's original illustrations from the book is a great way to whet your appetite for some real adventurous recording. Add your own color and excite your imagination!
Since we're all about getting a little unhinged, you might want to make it fun. Try coloring with strange materials while you're at it. Toe-nail polish and highlighter pens. Lipstick and blush. Spilled coffee. You figure it out. Enjoy!
And one last tip: you'll find a few special illustrations here that aren't in Recording Unhinged: Creative and Unconventional Music Recording Techniques, including one that if you fold it a certain way (look for the arrows), Neil Peart will turn into the drummer from the Stray Cats, Slim Jim Phantom!
