Recording in a BARN! u gotta check this out!

i just love recording outside the studio setting! (not something you hear everyday from a guy who owns a studio! LOL)

in april i recorded a Louisville, KY band (weber) in a few different locations around L'ville- outside in a park, and at their house.
AND i just spent the last 6 weeks tracking a few albums in northern wisconsin in an old barn. i had everyone (drums, bass, 2 electric guitars and vocals) all in the same space, used a lot of room mics for the drums and brought up a ton of vintage mics and gear to really do it right. the lower level of the barn has been converted into a posh living space, so the artists (mainly from minneapolis, about an hour away) stayed for the duration to gain some escapism during the recording sessions. check out my myspace page at www.myspace.com/chrismara for a video tour of the barn, and a good number of pictures. just go to the picture section and you'll see a photo album called 'the barn'. there are also a few videos in my video section of cutting everyone, and overdubbing some guitar solos, where i used room mics instead of relying on fakie digital reverb. the barn simply sounded awesome!

check it out! if anyone in on the coast has access to a similar space and wants to do the same type of thing...just let me know- i had a blast at the barn and am always game for unique projects...plus i'm going to be down on the coast in mid-august, so this could be win/win for everyone!

no- the acoustics ROCKED! you can hear it even in the video tour...i'm talking as i walk into the barn and the change is unbelievable. the barn was big enough to allow 2 guitar amps cranking and hardly any bleed onto the drum mics...which included 3 room mics!

right! the sessions were across june and july...it wasn't bad at all...and the nights really cool off up there, so it was beautiful all the way around!

gotcha! i read it twice and couldn't decide if it was a question or a statement! LOL.

it was really odd having internet access in the barn via the wi-fi downstairs...freaked me out!

I hear ya, I had a friend had "the control room"
in one room of his house and he recorded in two others, and the only contact you had was a camera, and talk back.
It was weird, I ran up and down the hall most of the time.
Eye contact is important.

Nice looking place man.
Reminds me of a studio in the netherlands in the mountains.
