This is an experiment devised by Sean to show a band sounds live. Whether in a studio or in a venue, there is a "live" sound that is wholly different to anything recorded in separate individual sessions in a studio. It's that "live sound" we all want to see and hear when we pay to get into a club. But how do you capture it? In this case, Sean brought in five shooters, twelve cameras, and used the on-board sound of the D800 and D810 cameras, which few videographers would attempt to do. The result is shown here.
