So, I played this gig last Saturday 29th October. It was very memorable. Death/re-birth of the venue.

Captured on film

Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t make a habit of posting mobile phone video camera recordings of performances on here (due to sound quality). But since The Creaking Chair may not perform Gravel l, l, lll in the near future, I think it has its place on this blog.

The size of a VHS

If the process of creating music interests you and not just the end result, then it’s worth noting that I have been making use of this delightful piece of equipment for a show coming up in July.

Its beautifully poor (sublime) sound quality and fiddly nuances should make for a WEIRDE one.

Bouffant Collective Session

I am very pleased to have taken part in Bouffant Collective’s first Laundry session. They will be filming more sessions in the coming months and intend to create an interactive map of laundrettes and musicians in the city. Click on the Bouffant Hair to watch it on their website!

Karaoke version

As you may have been aware, we were recently played on BBC introducing, southern counties radio. The track entitled ‘Untitled’ went down so well with listeners last week (Sunday 14th November) that it was played again today. This is very surprising. Surprising because during the airplay the vocal track was completely inaudible. A little bit like a sing-along Creaking Chair Karaoke version.

This oddity has something to do with the dynamic range compression of FM broadcasting conflicting with the way our recordings were mixed. This above sketch has something to do with what I have just said.

I still don’t really understand compression but intend to grasp it soon. I have also never been particular interested in sound and the technical process of recording. Sound is not my friend. It’s like a bar of soap that keeps slipping out of my hand.

I am now feeding blog posts to twitter and facebook and I will try not to annoy you too much.

P.s. Mrs Fitzherbert’s is the place to be this Friday 19th November…
