One Question Interviews: Hope Drone

Francis (Hope Drone – drums)

SPB: Was the mic’ing of your kit in the studio fairly straight forward, or were there some things you and the engineer did to find the right mics or experiment with sounds? 

Francis: Personally I wanted to go for a natural, organic Albini-esge drum sound. I put my faith in our engineer Christopher Brownbill who we have worked with previously and is a good pal. Chris tried to find the line between ambient and an expansive sound, but also closer and intimate enough for the aggressive parts so the articulation could cut through. A fair bit of experimentation occurred, but the main help was the drumming was consistent and not too heavy handed on the cymbals. The bottom line was trying to be realistic with the sound recording.
