Recording the bells of St. James

Saint James West 1A trip to St. James church in Vancouver’s lower east side with Jay Malinowski to record some epic bells for the new Deadcoast record Martel. On the Right, the bell tower; on the left, the instrument (located many stories below) that acts as a keyboard for playing the bells. Insane.

Storm Chasing

MD Img2The winter wind on Kelly’s Mountain (Cape Breton Island, NS) was gusting to around 70 kilometres
per hour during this storm in December 2012. It howled, whipped and whistled through the towers while roaring over the peaks above. Trees creaked and cracked; a curious raven called as it came and went. Recorded by a pair of miniature omnis + a pair of miniature cardioids + my MKH416 shotgun.
