I love this thread. Very nice Ryan. I love the Rockies. So much history is preserved out there. Nice going. What's the kit you're using?

Thanks! Zoom F8, Sanken CS3e, Senn MKH50, and 4x Lectros with DPA mics. And blimp systems for the shotgun when it's windy/snowy. 

My biggest project yet, indie feature for 5 weeks, but the DP said it's the best production sound he's ever heard. And he's DP'd 30+ features, so I'm doing something right.

Beautiful pictures..still envious. How's the F8 holding up in the extreme temps?

Flawless so far. Down to -10f* and light snow on it and no issues.

They could have painted out the boom pretty easily I'm sure (all green and just one very wide and very long shot) but they wanted dry lav sound and an ISO track of each of the five talents, so I agreed to sit down and mix instead of one man booming it all. Plus I got all the time I needed to adjust and correct lavs until I was 100% satisfied with the results, something that's very rare these days.

I got to do the sound design and some of the music composition for a new ballet: "Figures of Speech" by Alonzo King / Lines Ballet (SF).  A lot of work but pretty big fun--a score based on human speech: mostly endangered languages and songs in those languages.  In addition to recordings from several archives, I flew in all kinds of my location sfx and ambiance recordings from over the years, and Bernie Krause himself "lent" us some great bug tracks.  56 QLab cues in a 54 minute ballet!  Runs thru Sunday @ Yerba Buena Center in SF.

Most aspects of yesterday's gig, including pictures, are under NDA for now. But I can say that I got to help record Aoi Yamaguchi as she wrote some great (and big!) calligraphic stuff. She's an amazing artist; I'm still thinking about her work.

I mainly rolled on an interview with her and worked to capture the sound of her brushes and ink on paper.

Here's a picture from her website that shows her writing something kind of close to what she wrote yesterday. And yes, she emphasizes that she writes, she doesn't paint:
