SENNHEISER MKH 8040s CAPTURE THE BRASS FOR MACY’S CHRISTMAS CD

macys_cd.JPGPHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA – NOVEMBER 2008: The Wanamaker Organ, located in what is now the downtown Philadelphia Macy’s store, is the world’s largest operational pipe organ, boasting 28,541 pipes in 462 ranks. It is both visually and acoustically stunning and, beyond that, a precious piece of living history. The organ was originally built for the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair and later moved to Philadelphia as the crown jewel of the new Wanamaker’s Department Store. Even as Wanamaker’s changed owners and names over the ensuing decades, care was taken to maintain the tremendous instrument. At the behemoth six manual console is Grand Court Organist, Peter Richard Conte. Currently, Macy’s offers free concerts twice a day, six days a week. more

alltimelow_stage.JPGATLANTA, GEORGIA – NOVEMBER 2008: Up-and-coming pop/punk powerhouse All Time Low have played to packed houses night after night on their nationwide headlining tour. Nowhere did things start out more sketchy, but end more rocking, than a recent performance at Atlanta’s Masquerade, a club that draws the crowds despite a woefully outdated and semi-functional sound system. With the help of Danley Sound Labs engineer, Ivan Beaver, the band’s FOH engineer Evan Kirkendall, owner of Harford Sound, located in Abington, Maryland, replaced the Masquerade’s crusty horns and tattered woofers with a stack of Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers, led by eight of Danley’s new powerhouse full-range SH-46s. Despite prospects to the contrary, All Time Low rocked the Masquerade with clarity, bass, and hit-you-in-the-chest punch that left the club’s seasoned staff uttering rivers of awe-inspired and artfully crafted expletives. more

The Scharff Weisberg team had been sought after to light the shows, to be held at Symphony Hall Boston on September 18th & 19th, 2008, with an array of lights required to help create what assistant lighting designer David Marcucci calls a “smokey jazz look.” And, because a DVD, Blu-ray, and subsequent PBS broadcast of the event had been planned, special illumination considerations were to be accounted for. more
