I go to gigs in Dunedin, document them, then archive them here. I’m not affiliated with any venue or band so consider my recordings bootlegs.
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 don’t think Facebook is designed for long term storage, also the interface sucks and makes it impossible to find anything again. This is meant to be a more permanent archive, the idea being 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 $10 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.
