Sound of The Cup Song


Recommended Posts

Since these young people are talented musicians but no professional audio recordists (and no professional steadycam operators!!), I find this recording amazing.


It seems to be no playback.


An uncommon, creative, but effective recording technique. Which mikes are used?

This afternoon I met the lady who first worked out this routine with her friend. They were called Lulu & The Lampshades and are now known as Landshapes. We had an interesting discussion about recording bees.


You can see their original video here, although the YouTube sync is pretty terrible

I'm catching small breaths that couldn't possibly be picked up with that mic placement. They also seem to not be making any "effort" while singing.

I vote for lip syncing (without singing along) in order to capture the cups cleanly with just the playback track. Then more playback mixed in later.
