Collaboration between Symphony Number One and Martina Lynch. An orchestration of her song "Dear Media" (arranged by Frances Pollock). I shot this video during the live performance this past September 2017. This video was one of our most successful on social media, receiving over 4,000 views.
This live recording was captured using a mixture of microphones and direct-input feeds. There are a pair of main room mics capturing the natural room ambience and backing track. I blend those with the direct sound of the backing track so that the two merge - providing focus in the track but also the ambience of the live recording. Over top of that is the direct output of the vocal microphone, mixed with a bit of distortion to give it some edge and rawness.
