I met Silke Berlinn at the 2014 NAMM Show. She had just relocated to Los Angeles from Oakland, and had an idea for recording the song Ball and Chain. 5 days later (on Tuesday January 28th) I shot and recorded this quick live music video at my studio (Rock Pro Studios) in Northridge California, using musicians I assembled for this session. This was the third and final take. Everything was shot and recorded live, except the guitar solo which was over dubbed and shot a few minutes later. No other punch in fixes were done. Vocals also were not manipulated, Melodyned or altered for the sake of the RAW LIVE FEEL.
Shot with four (4) Canon DSLR cameras (5d MKIII, 5d MKII, 7D, and a 60D for hand held).
Edited on FCP7 on a MacBookPRO with G DRIVES.
Recorded into Cubase 7, using a Soundcraft SI Performer 3 digital console w an OPTICAL MADI card, and an RME MADI FX card in a MAC PRO.
Silke Berlinn & the Addictions cover Social Distortion's "Ball And Chain" written by Mike Ness.
