Thursday I booked the SSL Duality so that I could use the live room as a space for my dancer to perform for my audio for video project. I cleared out a space where the drums are usually placed. We recorded five takes of her dancing using a Canon D3100. I originally planned to use two Audio Technica U851A Boundary Microphone’s to pick up the sound of her feet movements. This didn’t work the way I planned because I had to play the poem out of my phone so that she could reference it while she danced. I thought about having her perform one last take without the poem so that I could just pick up the sound of her feet but I decided not to because she was getting pretty tired. One issue that I perceived for the video editing was that the dance was more of a freestyle with particular movements that stayed the same so it will be hard to sync the videos. I will likely just have to choose the best take.
