Melbourne Town Hall recording Bart Willoughby
More all night recording sessions for Bart back at the Melbourne Town Hall, interestingly the organ has 6024 pipes and stands at 9.75 metres high. Jon O’Neil lent a hand for these and brought along a bag of extra microphones (including a pair of AKG C414 XLS’, Carillon AXIS 70 ribbon and a Neumann TLM 49). Nick Sorich also assisted on the final night. Following the recording sessions we took impulse responses of the hall using sine wave sweeps and a starter pistol (conducted around 4am which was nice and quiet) recorded across 8 microphones spread throughout the hall.
