Dragging This Quad Around


I’ve been trying to drag the quad rig around more lately, and I recently found myself in a Brooklyn apartment with a nice view of the water and all of the happenings that go on in "cool town."

This day, it was early enough on a weekend morning where there wasn’t a ton happening except for the din of light traffic and the occasional boat off in the distance.

Lately, I’ve been a bit obsessed with occluded1 sounds, but this day I cracked the window a bit. So this recording, I guess, is partially occluded? Semi-sweet occluded? 60% occluded? Who knows, but I do like dark chocolate.2

Recording Geek Note: Rig consists of Schoeps CMC1′s with MK4 capsules set up for double ORTF. It was tracked with a Cooper CS 104 feeding a Sound Devices 744T

  1. "Occlude" is defined as: hide or obscure from prominence or view.

    In the case of sound, a good way to think about it is when sound passes through wall, doors, or windows. ↩︎

  2. I also love a bad joke that typically only makes sense to me. ↩︎
