Behind the Scenes--Chase Hamblin on Live From SugarHill Episode 8


We broadcast Episode 8 of Live From SugarHill last night. Our guests were the amazing Two Star Symphony and the equally amazing, Chase Hamblin.

I think it was our best show yet. Ross Wells from Zenfilm was there to shoot the video for the podcast which he will edit and make available in about 10 days on iTunes/Live From SugarHill Episode 8. Everett Taasevigen, was crawling around working his magic on the still photography. Al and Courtney Delaney of Outbound manned the internet uplink along with their new intern (and notable music attorney about town), Mary Jane Hancock.

While I was watching Chase perform, it occurred to me that I have this new iPhone 3G S that takes video and that I should try to film a bit of the show. It looks OK,.. you can see Ross and Everett getting the shots. The band was certainly awesome, but ironically, the part that I thought was going to be only so-so, the audio, sounds darn good for just recording in the control room.

This show really came together great. My co-host, Rosa Guerro, and I found our flow and I feel like we did good interviews with the bands. Our senior staff engineers, Chris Longwood, Josh Applebee, Steve Christensen, and Chris Longwood, engineered and mixed the best live audio to date. Our intern, Jesse Emmerson, went way above and beyond to help us out. Finally, our producer and SHRS studio manager Gina Miller made the logistics effortless. I can't wait to see the video podcast.

On another note, I'm off to Peru this afternoon to set up an ambient music concert and performance art piece in Trujillo for January '10. I'm super excited about that, and I'll be posting pictures when I get home. While I'm there, I'm going to visit Manchu Pichu--the lost city of the Inca's high in the Andes mountains. Cool!
