Front Page Flo

In June we traveled to the University of Akron's Daum Theatre to record the "staged reading" of Larry Kass' musical "Front Page Flo." The performance was choreographed by Tony-nominated George Pinney and was under the direction of music director Terry LaBolt. Larry is a long time friend of Audio, and we have recorded and provided audio for the radio broadcast of his "Mighty Wurlitzer Radio Hour" for many years. For this recording NAC Technologies supplied wireless head-worn mics for the cast and the show was multi-tracked using our Dante based recording rig. We mixed the recordings of the 2 performances down at the studio, and sent them for a Blu-Ray release by Larry's Razzmatazz Productions. You can also watch the full performance on YouTube ...

On-Location Recording

We perform weekly recordings of The Cleveland Orchestra at three venues:  Severance Hall, Blossom Music Center, and Miami, Florida's Knight Concert Hall. 

 

Recent remotes have been to Vail, Colorado to record the Dallas Symphony, and the current project is a Bach harpsichord CD with Brian Wilson at a church in Elyria.  See also: Beachland Ballroom section.

 

Earlier this year, we recorded the Cleveland Orchestra at Gordon Square, and WVIZ used the audio for a television special.  Most recordings are multi-track, and orchestras are recorded live to two track. We determine what is best for your sound.

 

You choose the venue right for your music, and we ensure you will sound your best!  The next step is to meet in the studio and mix it.  

Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland

Some of the groups we recorded at the Beachland Ballroom are:  

   The Fuggs

   Nick and the Godniks

   Death of Samantha

   Cobra Verde

   New Salem Witchhunters

It's a great and fun place to record.

Happy Dog, Lakewood

OK, maybe they don't look Happy, but they are clients!  We have recorded a few groups at the Happy Dog. Just about every type of musical group performs there, and we are ready to go (dogs stay home).
