Live At Clevelands - Presented by RØDE Microphones

Here at RØDE Microphones, innovation, technology and advanced manufacturing is a big part of our success, however we understand that at the heart of our industry is the creativity, expression and raw emotion on display from musicians and performers all over the world, and a microphone is truly pointless without the opportunity to capture these performances.

It's this focus on creativity and raw talent that the Live at Clevelands Sessions were born.

Filmed and recorded by Sydney based Filmmaker, Sound Engineer and RØDE Content Producer Sam Brumby, Live at Clevelands is a fortnightly live music session that showcases artists from in and around the Sydney region.

Recorded live inside the charming Cafe/Salon, 'Cleveland's', located at 311 Cleveland St. Redfern, these sessions couple the pleasing aesthetics of the stores surroundings with the captivating performances of the musicians.



Sam allows the performance to take centre stage, using a minimal filming and recording approach, consisting of only a few cameras, and a carefully selected suite of RØDE Microphones. From the high end studio microphones such as the Classic II, the NTR Ribbon Microphone, or the M1 Live Dynamic Microphone, mic selection is influenced by the artists's style, tonality and of course, on-camera aesthetics.



In each Behind The Scenes episode, Sam will break down the recording setup, explaining his mic selection choices and post production techniques.
