Easy gig, brought much more equipment than we needed (cables, extra mics). We brought a wireless mic with the intention of the minister, bride and groom using it, but we ended up not needing it (wedding party was about 20 people in a small outdoor space). The only thing I ended up having to adjust the sound for was Joe's piano, depending on what song he was playing.

Above: the view of the wedding area from behind our workstation. Joe sat at the piano while I sat at the table to his right.

Lars Tetens Music

Week 5, 10 hours worked. 
I went to work and Lars wanted to re-record one of the songs that we recorded the week before and 3 new songs to add to the "Live Show" youtube video I was editing. We recorded those songs. I started putting the new songs into the video I was putting together when I realized the songs didn't sound cohesive enough so I went back into the program and fix that. Lars also said since I had a mask on people couldn't tell if I was singing or not so I put background vocals in all the songs. I put all the audios back into the video editing system. I'm going to finish editing the video when I go in next week. He also brought to my attention a future project we will be working on. A freestyle rapper tragically passed away and his family wanted to make his raps into songs so we will be creating a chorus and getting in contact with animators to animate the rapper in his music videos.
