In its August 2013 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, CEO of Blumlein Records, and recipient of the Golden Bobby 2014 in the category “classical / instrumental music”, awarded by the Verband Deutscher Tonmeister e.V. (VDT), a registered association for audio industry professionals.  Accompanying his report are photos I took during the set-up for a live recording of a concert by 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.

Andrew Levine’s excellent references include live concert-recordings, sessions and lectures in Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, Denver, Hamburg, London, Munich, New York, Paris, Shanghai and Vienna. I have witnessed Andrew’s work and judging from my own experience as an events technician, I can say you 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.
