Location recordings

The majority of commercial classical recordings are made on location and so it is important that Tonmeister students have experience of location recording in venues away from the University campus and can deal effectively with all of the technical, organisational and logistical issues involved. To this end, the IoSR is equipped with the necessary kit to operate two full mobile recording units, including two student-drivable Vauxhall Combo vans.

Students are able to record concerts at the very best venues all across the South of England and the Midlands, including the prestigious churches and concert halls in London.

Recent recordings have been made by students at the following venues: As well as the extensive collection of microphones available to students, the following equipment is available for use on location recordings:
