The aim of dunedinsound.com is to document a slice of the current music scene in Dunedin as it happens.
Part of this involves going to gigs, documenting them via photo, video and audio, then archiving them here.
My recording rig is wearable, which means I can stand in the audience and get a pretty good recording without any setup required. Also unlike a recording from the soundboard my recordings capture exactly what it sounded like from the audience. The downside is not every element will be clear like a studio recording. Most of the recordings are binaural so that means they’ll sound best on headphones.
I’m not affiliated with any venue or band so consider my recordings bootlegs.
I don’t think Facebook is designed for long term storage and the interface sucks.
dunedinsound.com is meant to be a more permanent archive, the goal is that artists/fans will be able to access it decades from now.
No, I do it because I enjoy doing it. There’s literally zero monetization going on. No ads or sponsorship or anything.
It does cost money to host all this stuff. Currently that’s only around $5 a month but it will grow as I document more gigs. If you want to help cover the cost then you can donate via PayPal:
Because I enjoy doing it and I think this little micro-community is worth documenting.
