“Midnight Special” – class song for listening
(artist? Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee)
here is what i heard:
- harmonica, bass rhythm guitar, snare with brushes, lead & accompanying vocals
- blues riff but kinda country sounding (very clear, warm vocals)
- live off the floor with three or four microphones (perhaps a harmonica mic/ vocals & guitar)
- mono recording
- 20 questions bout mic tech (mono) -look all the way back to 1877 to 1930
- more recordings, critical listening assignment & blindfolded listening 25 min
dissect an audio example, write down and identify audio characteristics OK i am gonna start with a Youtube video of a live performance so i don’t have to face any technical questions
Estas Tonne …Cuban Dance & Rhapsody in 1 (2011) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n7DIEZBb5U
Is the example bright, muddy, thin, warm, or maybe low or high in volume? bright!
What is unique about the recording? Meaning does one thing pop out to you. It travels
Can you guess the sample rate and bit depth? Or if analog, what kind of tape and ips? If vinyl what rpm? Maybe MP3? If MP3 then what did the example start at before it became an MP3? omg will i be able to answer this question after the course?
Was it a live off the floor recording, or tracked? Both? O.K. its live…(fixed)
What’s the temperature where the recording took place? Probably hot under stage lights, no?
What is the vibe or mood of the example? flowing alternately yet intuitively from joyful & carefree to arousing & aggressive
Do the sounds define a place for you to experience? a place of aliveness and passion
How could you use the example in your own work? it would be quite the workout
