Sound shapes for a visual world

Videos were made. Delighted we is for now we are that much further at a remove from Snuffleupagus-dom. Grateful we am to those who hit record and share. In some instances we knew there would be cameras, in others, the cameras appeared to come out of nowhere, right in front of us, camera heads and the bodies of humans. But we maintained our composure. Except those few moments when we didn't. Had the cameras been affixed to hovering, darting drones we would've been truly unnerved. We realize that drone future is almost certain and almost here. There were stealth documentarians as well, thank heavens, for musicians not knowing the tape is rolling (video, virtual or otherwise) is almost always a good thing when making music. 

First up, I Think Like Midnight performed four tunes for The Key Sessions in the WXPN studios on 2/13/18, two of which were documented on video. Video links right below the images. Also be sure to check out the Key's Jonathan Vettese's awesome review of "This Land Is Your Mind" here.

About a year ago ITLM became aware of a beneficent spectral presence, which would manifest in digital space shortly after our shows with high quality recordings of those sets. The recordist in question revealed himself to be a sweet, self-effacing gent by the name of Kris, who records live performances and posts them for download at Phillytaper, and on his Soundcloud page. Some past ITLM sets live there. Kris recorded our album release set at PhilaMOCA on 2/22/18, which he also documented on video. He then synced the video to his sound recording made with the following signal path: Source: Schoeps mk4 -> BnBox -> SD Mixpre-3 (24/44.1)
Transfer: Audition CS6 (tracking, Ozone 5 MBIT+ dither) -> flac 16/44.1. Impressive! You can stream that audio here and watch the entire set here:
