In its latest issue, German magazine Professional Audio featured a report about mobile audio and video live recording by my friend and colleague Andrew Levine, a Hamburg-based location recording engineer and CEO of Blumlein Records. Accompanying his report are photos I took during the build-up for a live recording of a concert of Tonikum, the chamber choir of Berlin’s university hospital Charité, which performed Händel’s Acis & Galatea (Nymphs & Shepherds) at St. Elisabeth in Berlin-Mitte, a church designed in the 1830s by renowned Prussian architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel.
If you are in need of an audio or video recording, I highly recommend you to take a look at Andrew Levine’s excellent references, which list among others live concert-recordings and sessions in Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, Denver, Hamburg, London, Munich, New York, Paris, and Vienna. I have witnessed Andrew’s work and – judging from my own experience as an events technician – I can assure you that you won’t find many recording engineers who can match his professionalism, his passion for excellence in recording, and his gentle spirit. Andrew is a remarkable human being and it was an absolute pleasure to shoot the photo series that accompanied his article.
