“Music is Coming” for Pedro Eustache and Point Source Audio on the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience. Pedro Eustache, the featured winds soloist channels Game of Thrones’ iconic songs of Ice and Fire through 15 different instruments he said it feels, “like I’m doing martial arts!” The multidirectional artist will wear Point Source Audio in performances of eight exotic flutes he plays on the tour.
The invitation to join the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, conducted by score composer Ramin Djawadi is “an honour” said Eustache about being the featured soloist on the 24-date tour that started 20th February in cities across the United States and Canada. He found the sonic quality he needed with Point Source’s CR-8D cardioid headset microphone, along with a few bonus features that set the microphone apart from anything Eustache has used before.
The practicality of using the headset impressed Eustache: “With your mic, I can get it incredibly close to my mouth to capture the sounds. A typical instrument mic is not going to work; I play too many instruments and they’re not that practical for me.”
“What sold me on the Point Source mic that is also very important is the extendable length on the boom that allows me a lot of placement choices,” added Eustache. The company’s flagship unbreakable boom flexibility allows Eustache to practically stair step the mic boom quickly to the right angle no matter which instrument he is playing.
Another handy feature for Eustache is the collapsible ear hooks on the headset mic. He cited it as one of the main reasons he switched to Point Source saying: “It can become incredibly compact for transportation when you move the ear pieces and you put them flat. That’s amazing.” Immediately at the conclusion of the GoT Live Concert Experience tour, Eustache will join the Hans Zimmer Live Tour opening April 14th.
The CR-8D Cardioid Headset Microphone is a key member of Point Source Audio’s SREIES8 collection of miniature microphones. The cardioid headset is designed for mic’ing situations requiring optimal feedback rejection. The entire SERIES8 and EMBRACE collection of ear mount, headset and ear set microphones will be on demonstration at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Convention in Las Vegas, NV April 24-27 at Point Source Audio Booth C1110.
