On Friday afternoon, Simon and I took the Almias app up to the crag itself to test it and to record sound and video to accompany our rapidly approaching conference. Things all worked really well – looking forward to editing it into some kind of video – but for now here’s a couple of pics and a bit of sound! (Hiss to be cleaned up – it seemed to come off the headphone splitter, not the app!)
This was probably the first time I’d had a significant chance to listen back to the music we recorded on location back in 2010… I have to say that I think it worked beautifully – sounds truly born of the location and impossible to separate from it.
That app sound really interesting, good luck with it all. It’s hard to believe that Almias was nearly two years ago, I keep meaning to go back to Almscliffe Crag, but have never got around to it yet.
Also, I hope the potential Almias/IOSAS performance at the Harrogate Fringe Festival, which you mentioned in an earlier blog, takes place, as I really enjoyed the IOSAS gig at the theatre last year.
