Fiftieth || Parallel - Open Sky

Hello UG & Community,

We're are a two piece acoustic duo from Vancouver Island BC and we play island infused progressive acoustic music! On new years we released our new instrumental album entitled 'Open Sky' and we had a lot of fun experimenting with different tones & recording techniques.

For the more acoustic slow paced songs with two guitars we really liked using a stereo micing technique where we had two condensers, one facing vertically up, one vertically down and rotated 90 degrees. This gave a very warm sounding recording that was incredibly sensitive and picked up all subtleties. For the more progressive songs we experimented with running an acoustic guitar (with rareearth blend pickup) through an electric guitar halfstack and an acoustic amp to give a more gritty, full acoustic sound.

We are two 19 year olds who travel around to gulf island festivals in a 1986 camper van that we purchased through busking.

Here's an original track from our new album, it consists of Jonathan Hinds on Djembe drum and Philip Wolfe Marchand on acoustic guitar & minimal bass overdubs.
