Our good friend Scott Morris has just released video of the recording session with Andrew York for the Phonology CD which accompanies his book of Satie arrangements. GSI provided some amazing French guitars for the very French occasion: Scott plays a 1971 Daniel Friederich and Andrew plays a 1956 Bouchet.

    Nice. What a troop of mics. At least one Neumann, an E251 maybe, couple of EKGs (?), couple of ambient mics. They didn’t want to miss anything! Nice job. Nice arrangement.

    Very observant of you.. I dont know if youve had the pleasure of watching the video of Andrew performing his newest suite? As with this session there is a wonderful collection of mics and some interesting positioning as well. Not to mention the preamps… Not what I would have expected at all… Ive been trying to crack the York recorded tone for years and focused a great deal of energy on finding the most transparent mics and pres I could find… Now I start finding these videos of him tracking through Neve consoles, telefunken mics and other things I would have guessed colored the sound more than desired for this type of work…
    Amazing the more you think you know the less you really know..

    Hi guys,

    I thought it might be important to let you know that this is not Andy’s usual recording studio set up. These are the mics that I use when I work with Erich Gobel (producer and engineer) at West Triad in Venice, CA. We’ve done several recordings together and found that these fit my sound the best. I’m not sure what Andy uses then he records solo guitar. I’m sure if you emailed him he’d be happy to let you know.
