Production Rehearsals Day 2

Day 2 of 3 here at Bray Film Studios we are currently in act two of our second full run with Guest Artists, Strings and Band. Currently we're having a little trouble with some noise bugs on the strings. But that aside the Martian is flying correctly today and all other things so far are so good. I'm afraid I've not taken any more pictures of the back of the keyboard players or the play back as I am mildly bored of the view already. Something that will be of interest to all the sound engineers reading this is that we have the new Digico SD7 out front being used across the strings and vocals. Pictures and thoughts to follow.

The Martinans Rise Again

So here we are again Band Rehearsals for Jeff Waynes Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, at Hendon Film Studios London. My facard as backline keyboard tech has been maintained and they have asked me back. All is going well, we've had some troubles with the Muse Research Receptors, failing to load all the patches correctly but, today all seems reliable. Currently we are rehearsing Ian as the Dep Conductor, he would normally be playing keys 3. After lunch the guest artists will be joining us to run through their numbers before we pack up and move on to Bray Studios where bu now the stage will be fully laid out and the flying machine all ready. Hopefully more stories and pictures to follow. We open in Belfast on Sunday.
