Sofar Sounds – Music Videos

In January, I had the opportunity to shoot four live sets for Sofar Sounds Philadelphia.  If you haven’t heard of them, Sofar Sounds organizes live music events and holds them in regular living rooms.  The music is eclectic, the atmosphere sparks with an almost relaxed creativity and the people are easy – going, friendly and all around awesome.

Noah Dickenson and I rolled in an hour early, grabbed some establishing shots of the room and the people coming in and set up for the first of four acts.  Aaron Brown, DRGN King, The Gallerist and Mo Lowda and the Humble.

We shot on my 7D and Noah’s 60D and recorded audio on a pair of Zoom H4N’s placed on opposite sides of the room.  These were then mixed together for the final edit.  Recording audio during a live event from only one source can sometimes yield files that are too heavy on one instrument and too light on another, and mixing two separate sources helped to eliminate this issue.

All the videos were cut in FCPX by Noah.  Take a moment to check them out and head over to these artist’s sites.
