On the set of The Voice UK with the musicians

Behind the scenes at rehearsals for the live finals of The Voice UK. David Tench (Musical Director) and Steve Turner (Keyboard) talking about features on their equipment which helps them to deliver in such a pressured and time-precious environment… DSLR’s/ Zoom R16/ Edius


Spike Edney shows some love for his live ‘Queen’ rig

Last minute – like ‘what are you doing this afternoon James?’ dash to Hammersmith Odeon to meet one of the all time unsung heroes of the session and touring landscape of the last 3 maybe 4 decades…. Spike Edney.

Shot with the usual 5d MkII and 550d with a GoPro for braces… Zoom R16 picking up the outs on the keys. Korg re-did the edit in house.

Fantastic to hear someone play those riffs in from of you. I had rather a big grin behind the camera.

Jem Godfrey Demos Korg Kronos

The wonderful biscuit loving keyboard wizard Jem Godfrey takes Korg’s new 9 engined workstation for a spin round the block.

Filmed at Wise Buddah Studios in London at the end of August. Using a couple of DSLR’s with the audio routed to the lovely monitors in the room and my recorder, Jem is wearing my tie-clip of choice (when I can get power to it!) DPA 4061.

Fantastic couple of hours of filming – Jem can just rattle through these things, as he is genuinely passionate and excited about the product.
