The Philosophy 

The equipment that Larry uses has proven to be exactly the kind needed to capture a performance perfectly.  He carefully selects the gear needed to meet the requirements of each individual concert - considering all the specific acoustic requirements so that your production line-up is tailor made. 

Although top quality equipment is important to make a top quality recording, Larry does not believe that it should ever be the focus, recording.  Instead he subscribes to the view that recordings are best considered in terms of:

The Musical Performance

The concept of Gesthalt - a wholistic process view  - that systems function as wholes and that their functioning cannot be fully understood solely in terms of their component parts

KISS - no sense in over complicating for the sake of over complicating

 

The Gear

Microphones: Schoeps, DPA, Rode and Sennheiser

Editing and mixing:  Pyramix workstation

All location recordings are made on a Nagra VI recorder with monitoring on Sennheiser Headphones

Monitoring is by Meyer HD1,  AVI ADM9.1 and Grover Noting CR2 loudspeakers and Sennheiser HD650 Headphones
