Recording Voice in the Recital Hall

As a part of our Recording Studio Procedures class, we had the exciting opportunity to record professor Jessica Timman Schwefel on voice and professor Kirstin Ihde on piano in order to demonstrate a recording in the recital hall using our mobile recording setup. The performances included a piece from an romantic-era opera by Jules Massenet, as well as a musical theatre style performance from "A Chorus Line".

The process involved using an Allen & Heath mixing console and audio interface to a laptop. We coincidentally used all AKG brand condenser microphones including a vocal mic, pair of mics on the piano, and also a stereo pair of small-diaphragm condenser mics placed back in the hall in order to capture the sound of the acoustic space. We are so grateful to have had such a fantastic demonstration!
