Student Recital Recording Policy and Order Form

Shea 101 Recital Hall:

Classical Recital Recording

Classical recitals are recorded with a stereo pair of microphones to accurately capture the sonics of the performers and the recital hall. No attempt is made to artificially alter the nature of the performance. If for some reason there are special circumstances we will do our best to make technical accommodations. RECORDING AND EDITING FEE: One edited compact disc: $45.00 (max 74 minutes).

Jazz Recital Recording

There are two recording options available to jazz recitalists: Stereo or Multitrack Recording.

Stereo - recitals are recorded with a stereo pair of microphones to accurately capture the sonics of the performers and the recital hall. No attempt is made to artificially alter the nature of the performance. No individual instrument microphones are available. If for some reason there are special circumstances we will do our best to make technical accommodations. RECORDING AND EDITING FEE: One edited compact disc: $45.00 (max 74 minutes).

Multitrack - with this option each instrument is individually miked. The engineer will provide a stereo mix of the performance. A multitrack recording will be made at the same time. The recitalist has the option to request a copy of the Pro Tools session or request additional studio time to mix the multitrack recording. If a copy is requested the recitalist will provide a storage device with adequate space available. If a mixing session is desired the recitalist can book a studio session at the rate of $25/hr. RECORDING FEE: One edited compact disc: $75.00 (max 74 minutes).


PAYMENT: Payment must be received prior to the date of the recital unless other arrangements have been made with the SEA coordinator. Payment is made to the Audio Association.

Editing: All selections will be edited to the opening down beat and to the last musical note. A two second space will be inserted between each track. An attempt will be made to remove all applause. If you wish, you may arrange for alternate editing but these arrangements must be requested at the time of the CD order.

Recitalist guidelines for making the best recording:
Please supply the recordist with a detailed list of the instrumentation, approximate duration of selections, and any other information which would help the engineer anticipate any challenges. Without this preproduction information, the quality of the recording could potentially suffer. You can contact the recitalist through David Kerzner, room 115 Shea.
