The Tokyo Rosenthal Program

The Tokyo Rosenthal Program is an internationally syndicated radio show, taped in front of a live audience at the Pittsboro Roadhouse in Pittsboro, NC.  The show features Tokyo Rosenthal, an Americana artist, playing some of his songs and hosts a guest artist for a performance/interview.  For Season 3 I took on the role of video producer and audio assistant.  I shot and edited the video, as well as mixed the audio for the video version.   The audio was all recorded through a Presonus StudioLive Console with mostly dynamic stage mics and DI’s.  The video was shot on a Fujifilm DSLR camera with backup shots from an iPad.

I have embedded two of the shows for your viewing pleasure.  One features “The Sap Boilers” and “Marshall Ballew.”  The other features “Twin Courage” and Triangle-Area favorites “Mipso”   The video quality is decidedly amateur(I’m not video guy), but the audio is where these pieces really shine.  I did the audio mix for each of the videos. I did my best to capture the intimate vibe of the show and venue and I really think it comes through in sound mix.  You can find the rest at the Tokyo Rosenthal YouTube Channel  

Overall it was a fantastic experience and I got to meet many outstanding musicians.  I will be returning for season 4 and posting some of those clips as they came.
