I never thought that recording in a gym could give me great satisfaction but with this gig the label a Simple Lunch was founded.
“An unique acoustic space offered me the hint to investigate the nature of sound in space. Movement, refraction times, reverberation, timbre, sound masses, points, surfaces, textures, flows. A journey suggested directly by the nature of the sound: the discovery of a sound – echo system in dynamic balance.
No effects were used. All reverberations were natural. Five microphones located at a variable distance from the instruments did the recording. Mix aimed to perceive the complexity of listening alive.
During the performance, the audience was actually invited to move freely in the gym, in order to grasp the endless modifications of sound within the space: footsteps, little creaks and accidental sounds are produced by this.”
