    The Concert Choir at Kirkland, Washington’s Northwest University has a reputation as a premier performance ensemble, demonstrating a wide-ranging musicality on pieces from throughout the choral repertory. For the choir’s recent annual concert at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, engineer Steve Smith recorded and mixed the live performance, utilizing microphones from Audio-Technica. Although the recording will likely be used only for archival purposes and internal circulation rather than commercial release, Smith did not take any shortcuts, carefully miking the 100-plus member choir,… View this post

    Popular rock band Umphrey’s McGee are touring with a wide assortment of Telefunken dynamic microphones for vocals and drums. “Keeping the drum kit out of a drummer’s vocal mic is difficult.,” says FOH mixer Chris Mitchell.  “The M81-SH offers great rejection while still sounding natural and strong.” Originally from South Bend, Indiana, the music of Umphrey’s McGee is often referred to as progressive improvisation or “Improg”. Although the band is part of the jam band scene, with ever-changing setlists, improvisation,… View this post

    Jamie Kent is a cut above the average singer-songwriter. Not merely an acclaimed musical act and creative voice with soulful and rootsy influences, Kent is fiercely independent and entrepreneurial, creating a unique business model (known as “The Collective”) that has helped him build his fanbase from the ground up. He has since expanded “The Collective” concept to “The Collective Music Group,” which sees Kent consulting other artists on how to build their fanbases after Kent’s example. As he tours the… View this post

    This article, from the archives of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, provides an in-depth look at a new concert sound loudspeaker system unveiled in 1983 by leading touring company Electrotec. The text is presented unaltered, along with the original graphics. Roxy Music has not toured in the U.S. since the late Seventies. The band actually dissolved in 1979, and only came together again during early 1982 to produce Avalon; in April of this year, the group was on… View this post
