September 14, 12.00 – 17.00 Work of a sound engineer with an orchestral group


The exclusive workshop "Work of a sound engineer with an orchestral group" will be interesting for all sound engineers of cultural facilities, conductors, recording studio employees, technicians and musicians.  

An orchestra is a large instrumental ensemble typical of classical music, which mixes instruments from different families, including bowed string instruments such as violin, viola, cello and double bass, as well as brass, woodwinds, and percussion instruments, each grouped in sections.

Successful operation of any orchestra depends not only on well-coordinated work of all musicians, on a clear management of the conductor, but also on a well-structured work of a sound engineer with all members of the orchestra. The larger the orchestra is, the more difficult is to control and to set the sound before the orchestra performance.

The workshop will show you how to structure your work with the orchestra, how to set the sound of each musical instrument for the organic sound of the whole team. 

Within the workshop there will be a presentation of Point Source Audio microphones

Dmitry Sychev, sound engineer, teacher, member of the international community of sound engineers "Audio Engineering Society" will work with the NeoSymphony Orchestra by Arsen Baderkhan.
