A bit of a soundcheck before laying down some drums for the score of “Little Paradise”. Douglas Pipes was the composer, and he was looking for an open, dare I say ‘jazzy’ type drum sound for his music. There were no close mics used, just 2 room microphones and a mono overhead mic.
This is the kind of studio drumming that I enjoy a lot – oragnic, dynmaic, and real sounding tracks. You can hear some of the finished cues that were used in the film in this post.
