Classical Recording Assistantship

CIGSIE, Winter 2008-09

Project Description

Recording Assistantship with Channel Classics Records. Besides learning about DSD, surround mixing, and Classic Channel's business model, [Managing Director and Oberlin alumnus] Jared Sacks traveled to Budapest and London, where he recorded the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Rachel Pager and Gary Cooper. These trips were highlight of his studies as I could see exactly how the recordings are made-the microphone placement, the number of microphones, the gain structure .... After each session, we will return to Jared Sacks' home to edit and mix the recordings. We will assist in the editing and mastering process."
