I recorded a short live set in the Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo, Norway last month.
Every year, some friends I met through the ilovefuzz.com message board organize a meetup in Oslo. We take turns playing short sets inside the mausoleum, and make recordings of it. It’s an awesome gathering and I’ve made some absolutely incredible friends through it.
This year I had to travel light, so I did the entire set with an iPad, norns (running MLR), and a grid. The room is incredible. It’s about 8500 sq ft, completely enclosed and dimly lit, with frescoes covering the the 70ft(ish?) ceilings and walls. The ceiling is smoothly arched, which gives the room over 15 seconds of natural reverb. Recordings were captured with a pair of field recorders, one close to the amp for a dry mix, and one a bit further away to capture the room. Mixing and mastering courtesy of Ed Pettersen.
