JoeCo BlackBox captures the musical spirit of New Orleans in Tremé

Film & TV sound recordist Robert C. Bigelow has been responsible for capturing the live music performed during the filming of HBO’s hit series Tremé. In television terms the show is unique as it features the live performance audio from the shoot, as opposed to a pre-recorded soundtrack that is mixed in afterwards. During three seasons of the show, BlackBox Recorders have been on hand to capture the musical spirit of New Orleans in a diverse range of performances from the city’s streets and clubs. Robert shares his BlackBox experience with JoeCo.
