A great concert from the National Youth Guitar Ensemble, featuring an original composition from the director, Gerald Garcia. Keith Fairbairn was the guest soloist for this concert, playing Marimba and percussion. CDs will be available from the NYGE website: http://www.egta.co.uk/content/nyge
I recorded the concert onto 8 track, to leave some options open for mixing. A main pair of Oktava mics provided most of the sound, but these were supplemented with spot mics on Marimba, bass guitar and percussion, resulting in a really natural, intimate but enveloping sound.
A really fantastic concert that I was proud to be involved in!
