Gym Instructors

This session was originally planned to be a Main Street Session with local rockers Hy-Test. However on the day their drummer was unable to make it, thankfully for us 2/3 of Hy-Test are Gym Instructors!

Having toured Europe and America with Nick Oliveri and Mondo Generator last year Hy-Test are enjoying a period of success as they proved by organising the hugely successful Hy-Fest festival at the Cabbage Tree hotel in Wollongong a month after this session was filmed.

This session was a about nailing a rough and ready sound, we experimented with some toy mics and our usual SE Gemini II go to mic was used in a different setup than the norm. For this session the Gemini II was in the corner of the room recording a broken china cymbal which was vibrating with the room. Sounds a bit artsy fartsy but the amazing reality is alot of the mix is coming from that mic!

Ladies and Gentlemen and those in between, we proudly present Gym Instructors.

This song had no name until the guys got to the studio and started playing with a sampling pad. Any guesses what the sampling pad was called?
