Communicating Through Recordings (on any budget)

Clinic Synopsis:

Recordings are powerful tools for an ensemble. They offer unparalleled rehearsal feedback and can be the best way to share a commission or a polished performance. Scott Tegge, Jim Ginsburg, and Bill Maylone from Grammy Award winning Cedille Records, along with demonstrations from the Gaudete Brass will explore ways to navigate problems associated with making recordings such as mic placement, room acoustics, great results on a limited budget, and giving commissioned works a life beyond the first performance.
