Let’s start with the recordings from our 2021 attic studio, which we set up in response to the lockdown measures that prevented us from performing to live audiences. The videos show us playing as we would to a live audience, with the added advantage that we’ve now been able to reach a much wider public across the globe (see a selection of the responses on our reviews page).
OUR 2021 RECORDINGS
Having set up and extensively trialled the audio and the video in our new attic studio over October and November, we were just about ready to publish the two Christmas numbers below in time for the 2020 festive season.
BUILDING OUR OWN STUDIO
The re-closure of restaurants and other public venues in October 2020 lead to a focus on recording our repertoire so we could continue to play and share our performances online. This is something we’d long been planning to do, but never had time to because of our performance schedule. We felt a home studio would be the best fit, as our time would then be our own and with only two of us involved, we would be less likely to be affected by social distancing rules. The technical side of our studio was gradually built up over the course of the month, with the first stage of positioning ourselves and our instruments shown below.
SOFA LOUNGE STUDIO
Little did we know that the coronavirus pandemic was just around the corner, when on the 11th of February 2020 we booked into the Sofa Lounge Studio in The Hague, to convert the live stage experience of 50+ recent gigs into some quality recordings. We set up as we would for a live performance and played six of our favourite numbers as they were recorded and filmed. The results are shown below the Facebook post, in the order in which they were recorded:
