Audio for video:
I've done a lot of audio for online video of music events that were streamed and/or captured live. Here are some examples of sound recording work I've done for video produced by others:
String Orchestra of Brooklyn: Johannes Brahms Violin Concerto, I. Allegro non troppo
Eli Spindel leads the String Orchestra of Brooklyn, featuring Rachel Lee Priday in this outstanding performance; recorded on a cold winter's night in historic St. Ann & Holy Trinity Church.
Laura Andrea Leguia Jazz Orchestra: Carrusel de luces Gabriel Alegría
Not my mix, but my recording of this fantastic Afro-Peruvian jazz orchestra at Symphony Space a couple years back, and it was a memorable concert. Here they are led by the composer/arranger himself.
SONOS Chamber Orchestra: Dies Irae J.C. Bach
Sonos Chamber Orchestra performing the New York premier of this work at St. Peter's Church. Conducted by Erik Ochsner; with members of the REBEL Baroque Ensemble.
Video shot by Scott Young at St. Peter's Church.
Ensemble ACJW: Urlicht from Mahler's 2nd Symphony
Ensemble ACJW live at Le Poisson Rouge: recording a classical ensemble in a rock'n'roll club with only a half hour to set up has its challenges, but I really enjoyed this Mahler arrangement. Video by Kornhaber Brown.
Carnegie Hall: National Youth Orchestra: Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin
Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra performs their signature medley of pieces from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess
Video by Kornhaber Brown.
- I recorded the live performance of these talented youngsters at Harlem Stage - portions of which you can see (and hear) in this video - which was given as part of their preparation for a Carnegie Hall concert in November 2010. Check out the up-and-coming talents of two of the student soloists here at 1:05 and 2:53, both of whom brought down the house. The live concert audio is my work; the dialogue and workshop audio, as well as the video, were done by Kornhaber Brown
I started shooting single-camera video a couple of years ago as an addition to the audio recording. Here are a few examples of my own work:
Dorian Baroque: Ombra mai fu G.F. Handel
Fabulous performance by Dorian Baroque, led here by guest conductor Silas Nathaniel Huff, featuring countertenor Jeffrey Mandelbaum. Shot with AG/AC90.
This ensemble, led by founder Marina Fragoulis, typically performs in the Church of the Epiphany on the UES, which features wonderful acoustics for this type of repertoire. You can find some examples here:
NPR - Newport Folk 2011: Mavis Staples, Live In Concert
In 2011, I once again had the privilege and great pleasure to be the Quad Stage Broadcast mixer for NPR at the Newport Folk Festival. There were so many incredible acts, but the most amazing experience for me was the opportunity to mix Mavis Staples live in concert. The whole set was fantastic, but check out 46:48 if you love I'll Take You There:
