Just spent a very nice 3 days in the studio with the wonderful Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (Scott Tennant, Matt Greif, Bill Kanengiser, John Dearman). The music includes new pieces by Dušan Bogdanović, Ian Krouse, and some very unusual modern arrangements of renaissance pieces.
We recorded at one of my favorite rooms; The Bridge recording studio in Glendale. A truly fabulous room – large enough for a small orchestra, and really great for small chamber ensemble recording (not to mention all kinds of other music).
Mics used were mostly Sennheiser MKH800s, with a pair of ORTF B&K4011s and spaced Neumann TLM50s for room.
Great fun! I think they’ll be doing a Kickstarter campaign soon to generate funds for the completion of the project. Look for them at their Facebook page.
A few quick snaps from the session:
