This video is a documentary made by Alain Le Kim from Soundstrips. It is a complete journey in the universe of David Bock, creator and manufacturer of high-end microphones.

David Bock has a long experience in the world of microphones. He worked in the most prestigious big studios in New York, and Los Angeles. His serie of microphones is inspired by the long legacy of the famous vintage mics of the fifties. He is also an accomplished cook and finds the two activities very complementary. Precision, attention to detail are essential in the design and manufacture of high end microphones as well as gastronomic cooking.

We followed David at his prestigious friends places in L.A. scoring mixer Steve Kempster, producers Ross Hogarth and J.J.Blair who explain their ways to the use of microphones in their work. We also meet Capitol Studio’s Bruce Monical and Michael Cimarusta, Chef from the prestigious Providence Restaurant in L.A.

«The education for music may very well be more important than what you would learn with a degree in electrical engineering in terms of building microphones or audio gear, in a sense that as a musician, you are going to listen and electrical engineers don’t necessarily have a listening training, so they could make something that would be theoretically very correct, but not very useful in the end.»

A film by Alain Le Kim.

This is a great video to break up the normal mixing content. Understanding how microphones are made can change your perspective recording live instruments. Cool addition PM.

I'm not saying that I can't learn from people but I know how to cook. When I say I know how to cook, I mean really I know my way around. So, as an advice, next time you hold the nife to chop, hold it side way and lean the life to your hand. It will help you avoid cutting yourself and you can also chop anything faster without losing size difference or quality. I know it will take time to grasp it but once you are experienced you will cut the time you spend in the kitchen on a half. Cheers!
