Extreme Location Recording - sE Electronics In The London Eye

Frank Hamilton London Eye EP

 

 

Well if you thought Neil Young recording Harvest in a barn was a tricky location, imagine tracking an EP within 30 minutes in a bubble suspended over London, without any mains electricity. Still that's what London singer songwriter Frank Hamilton fancied doing and sE Electronics were up for the challenge.

Relying purely on the laptop to power the RNR1 on Frank's vocal and SE4's on guitar and as an ambient pair. The VR1 Ribbon mics on viola and cello didn't use up as much juice but it was still no mean feat.

As Frank says “Recording in a glass bowl (450 feet above the River Thames) was always going to be a
logistical nightmare but it was made infinitely easier by the support and expertise of sE Electronics and their
microphones. We used the RNR1 (which I've wanted to try for ages) on my vocals and all of us were blown away
by the warmth and the ease at which it sat in the mix (with very little EQ). The SE4's we used on my guitar did the
business as usual - I've used them before and I'm almost certain we'll use them on the album.”

If you fancy doing some location recording yourself then sE have a great deal on at the moment, offering free Reflexion Filters ideal for taming unruly acoustics in less than perfect locations. Of course if you've already treated your studio then they can help make a recording sound even better.
