Filk, aka: science fiction folk songs

Attend any science fiction convention, and at some point, and you are likely to find folks sitting around and singing. At the small conventions, this happens in hallways and in private rooms. At the larger conventions, there are rooms set aside for this. At the larger conventions, there are even stages, some with P.A.s for the more well know singers to perform on.

Chances are, you will also find a few folks recording the performers.

When I first started recording professionally, this is one of the places I got my start. Every one was welcome to set up their gear (as long as they didn't interfer with the performers).

Chris Weber - I Filk

If I remember correctly, I did all the recording and the mix down. This was recorded at my place. We had a 4 track, open reel recorder. Although I don't recall that we ever had that many microphones running at the same time. On a few of the tunes, we recorded on 3 tracks, mixed them down to the remaining track, then recorded 3 more tracks. While not optimal, this gave us the flexibility to do what we wanted to do, while keeping the recording under budget.
