The Palladium boots under the mixing desk will be removed before the next photoshoot. You take them off when you’re working in the winter so that you don’t get blown to bits by static electricity. Make sure you always connect to ground: the gray carpet and Manhattan underneath.

You can see the spark, sometimes, when you forget. That’s a discharge which can take out a recording. Such are digital electronics.

See Johnny Reinhard working on the central video monitor.
