PREPARING THE RECORDING
This was recorded at de Boerderij, amongst about 200 people.
I had a good spot, in front of the mixing desk slightly to the right.
The recording came out really well. People were quiet and listening to the music.
Tracks were slightly EQ-ed and volume was corrected. I use no compression so the
dynamics stay in tact. After correction, tracks were split at sector boundaries.
Flacs are tagged for convenient playback on compatible systems.

ABOUT THE CONCERT
This was the first concert that Airbag gave outside their home country of Norway.
They came to the Netherlands to play at the symfo festival organized by the dutch
IO Pages magazine. Originally Airbag was to open day 2, but they turned out to be
the headliner of the day. Well deserved I think, for they are very good.
Joachim Slikker who usually plays drums broke his leg, so a replacement was found.
Some material from the debut album Identity was played, but also new songs were
presented. After a set of 75 minutes the crowd kept on calling them back for a
second encore, but they ran out of songs. Maybe more next time.
Enjoy this great band!
