Flamenco guitarist at the Exeter Phoenix.

Another musical act encountered at this year’s Exeter Respect Festival. Didn’t float my boat as much as the Indian music, but was still an interesting listen.

This month I’ve replaced my clunky old Sony MZ-R50 minidisc recorder with a Zoom Handy Recorder H2. One of the benefits is that it records direct to SD card in a choice of formats, which I can then just drop on to my desktop in seconds. I had a good opportunity to trial it with my Sound Professionals SP-TFB-2 binaural mics yesterday (some results of which are below), and the results were even better than expected. I read a few reviews that reported some undesirable noise with this setup, so I was relieved!.
So this weekend saw the return of the Exeter Respect Festival, so as usual I went to soak up the atmosphere and make some recordings.
The first pair of recordings are of a group who played Indian Devotional Music. The group consisted of a female vocalist, a tabla player, and a sitar player.
