How We Work

The purpose of this project was to explore some of the challenges and techniques associated with recording the sound of the rear-facing French horn. In this fantasia, I pieced together excerpts of my playing with the horn miked close to the bell, more distantly in the hall, and in the midst of the orchestra. The voice of the conductor is used throughout the mix as a commentary on the art of balancing symphonic sounds from a podium, which parallels what I learned about balancing sound from my seat as simultaneous musician and recording artist.
