Online Content

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

Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall: Too Hot to Handel Creative Learning Project



- 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


Video:

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:

In Drury Lane: Music of the English Theatre



Brooklyn Chamber Music Society: BeethovenSonata for cello and piano Op.5, No.1: Allegro vivace



Julia Lichten and Sahi Wosner make magic in Brooklyn. Shot with GH3.

Glass Farm Ensemble: Jean Françaix: Baiao


Yvonne Troxler's outstanding contempory chamber music ensemble performs a bit of aural sorbet. Shot with AG/AC90.


Audio:

Sympho: Bionic Symphony - Prokofiev: Classical Symphony: I - Allegro
Paul Haas led his orchestra through a program made up of many different symphonic movements, interwoven with pieces of his (and) other composers in an innovative presentation and performance of this literature at Angel Orensanz Center. Here is one of the movements.

NPR - Newport Folk 2013: Colin Meloy and "Black Prairie" (aka: The Decemberists), Live in Concert
Forget the mono video audio - check out the full-length audio-only version at 36:00 to hear the Decemberists perform "Yankee Bayonet" with Laura Veirs in glorious stereo. The mix takes at least a verse to dial in: there are no soundchecks at this stage - this song WAS the soundcheck. Live-to-air baby!

Brooklyn Indie Music Fest meets Live in Your Living Room
A sampling of rough mixes from a mini-festival. Recorded live at Littlefield, September 2012.

Brooklyn Chamber Music Socety: J.S. Bach: Violin Conccerto in A minor (BWV 1041)
- From the same Bach concert as the clip embedded in the top section of this page; this featuring Arnaud Sussman as the violin solost.

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:
