    On the nights of February 16 and 17, 1971, the first commercial quad recording sessions ever were held In San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. This monumental edifice to God’s glory and Episcopalian financial acumen is blessed with a fine pipe organ, a 90-foot ceiling, and a 7-second reverberation time. The latter, in particular, put some stringent limitations on both the recording technique and musical style involved. The session was for side 2 of Paul Beaver and Bernard Krause’s new Warner Bros.… View this post

    John DeFaria’s distinctive licks are part of the fabric of classic songs from Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine, Kenny Loggins, and Kitaro. His compositions also include music for TV and movies like American Dad, Lifetime, and Oprah Winfrey’s channel. As with most composers, DeFaria gets his ideas from everywhere, all the time. And of course, he keeps a handheld recorder nearby for when inspiration strikes. He recently upgraded to the new Tascam DR-100mkIII digital recorder, and its 24-bit 192kHz… View this post

    A few years ago, I attended two “straight” plays, i.e., the kind without musicians. Such events are all about the dialog (and the lighting, of course). One production had no discernible sound reinforcement and the other had totally overt and apparent microphones, loudspeakers and amplification, thereby opening an opportunity for me to compare and contrast.
