As a pianist, I am very particular about sound, but I am even more interested in creating an environment where musicians feel free to take musical risks, and where recording is a canvas for artistry and honesty. Based in Kingston, NY, I can travel throughout the Hudson Valley and tri-state region. We can work together to find a suitable location for your project.
I am currently equipped to record chamber music and small ensembles, outdoors or indoors. I am also equipped to run live-streams from one video channel, routed to one streaming platform of your choice, but can record to multiple cameras for a later video release.
I use bespoke, hand-built, low-noise, low-distortion microphones made in the USA and Sweden, and high-definition audio recorders (also made in the USA) with backup battery power in case of power failures, unreliable power sources, or outdoor sessions. Please give me a heads up if your session is taking place outdoors, because this always requires advance planning.
