2014-2015 Season

I did not begin recording the Gallery Series until spring of 2015.

KATHRYN EBERLE & JASON HARDINK

April 19, 2015. Finch Lane Gallery, Salt Lake City

Notes: Recorded with Pro Tools, 96kK, 24-bit (downsampled to 44.1 for this page).Room was problematic, both small and crowded and with difficult sight lines.  Mics were placed to the sides, yielding less than ideal characteristics.  Recording is probably sweetened with Exponential Audio reverb, but notes don't indicate which ones. AKG414XLS microphones for both piano and violin. Notes don't indicate, but violin was probably super/hyper cardioid, while piano was probably cardioid/sub-cardioid.

Oct 18, 2015. 15th Street Gallery, Salt Lake City

Notes: Recorded with Pro Tools, 96kK, 24-bit (downsampled to 44.1 for this page). Room very live.  Recording is sweetened with Exponential Audio R2 Surround and noises removed with Izotope RX. AKG414XLS microphones in sub-cardioid form, spaced omnidirectional.
