In-da-dome – Tip of the Pops live at Woodhaze released

Rock Chicks

This was my first digital recording using mini-disc and boy what a difference it makes! The whole editing took about 6 hours using free software Audacity; approximately 1 hour for every 10 minutes of music. The overall sound quality is up 5 fold, there are still imperfections but that is no fault of the equipment.

The party was in a geodesic dome accommodating about 30 people. All the jumps and skips on the recording were people dancing or moving around bumping and grinding into Earwig! The other interference is from a mobile phone which someone had left near by and was ringing-it to try and find it.

At one stage we had the whole dome rocking whilst the rest of the house and garden was empty. Other DJ’s played drum n bass and techno but we had by far the best atmosphere and least complaints. It just goes to show the wealth and quality of vinyl that’s being buried in landfill!
