Flor De Muertos 56 Channel On-Sight Live Recording with Calexico

Flor De Muertos, a documentary celebrating the twentieth anniversary of All Souls Procession, included the filming of a live performance of Calexico. Calexico's setup was a large endeavor consisting of 44 open mics on stage, 4 direct boxes, 6 audience mics, and a stereo pair in front of the house. Craig Schumacher, who has a long history of recording the band, called Jim Pavett at Allusion Studios to help out due to his expertise in mobile on-sight recording, such as the 2004 Great Wall of China concert. Due to the large amount of open microphones and musicians on stage, it was necessary to have two engineers monitoring the recording during the whole performance. This project is currently in postproduction with no release date as of yet.
