A dialog between a voice, a fretless bass, and a church organ made in 1791. In a handful of countries, two churches, and two continents.
I have been an avid lover of U2 since day one, especially their Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky concert film.
Here is my live, one-take music video of U2 “October” that I recorded stealth in various parts of the world using an Apogee Duet and Shure KSM32.
We recorded this special song during our travels for Project Eléctrico (a Global Recording Project). We recorded live in Tlacolula, Oaxaca, with a 1791 Restored Church Pipe Organ. We recorded in Selvogur, Iceland, my live Vocals in Strandarkirkja Church. The fabulous Tony Levin is on Fretless Bass which he recorded at his studio in the United States.
