LSE4 - Miking the Symphony: Variations on a Theme
Presenters: Shawn Murphy, Recording and Live Sound Engineer - Berkeley, CA, USA George Relles, Relles Sound, Inc. - Eugene, OR, USA
Abstract: Symphony sound reinforcement has grown from modified Decca trees with outriggers and spot mics borrowed from recording to individually miking every stand or even every musician. Approaches vary from matched pencil condensers to various types of mics for each orchestra section with interesting similarities and differences from one engineer to another, depending, of course on available inventory.
