Quick Film we made for Sonor Drums at Gavin’s house. Audio recorded and mixed by Gavin himself. Apart from the control room – where the kit is always mic’d up – Gavin’s studio has incredibe echo. To get round that we had to close mic with a decent cardioid mic, which unfortunately is in shot. Edited on Edius, filmed with Canon DSLR’s for the 2013 NAMM show.
A quick interview before a date on his recent tour (Malvern Theatres) to do with specifically into how he got into playing, and any advice for people wanting to start or get back into playing the piano.
