Film Your Next Concert at Faust Harrison Pianos in New York

Although many artists film their live concerts, there are those who prefer to film their recording session. Filming your recording session can produce top quality videos that will be highly memorable and enjoyed for years to come. Furthermore, using HD video cameras, professional audio recording equipment, and advanced software for editing, encoding, and authoring, guarantees producing a high-quality DVD and Blu-ray Disc master at an affordable price.

Here are 10 reasons why you should film your recording session:

  • You do not have to worry about stage anxiety when performing without an audience.
  • You can take your time and record sections as many times as you want until it is to your satisfaction. I can edit the original recording and seamlessly incorporate the revised sections into the edited master.
  • Your selected repertoire can be longer than the one you perform in a concert. The total playing time of your edited master can be up to two hours for a single-layer DVD or up to four hours for a dual-layer DVD. For a Blu-ray Disc master, you can fit even more hours: up to three for a single-layer disc and up to six for a dual-layer disc.
  • Cameras and microphones can be positioned at the best locations without interfering with the audience as often happens in live performances.
  • Musical instruments can be tuned more often during breaks between pieces or movements.
  • When performing technically demanding pieces, you can take longer breaks and relax between pieces or movements and thus reduce mistakes and inaccuracies.
  • After recording a movement, you can review the video recording on a monitor and listen to the audio. If you don't like the camera positions for whatever reason, they can be changed to your liking very quickly.
  • Proper lighting conditions and closer distances of the cameras improve overall picture quality.
  • If you are a pianist, you can test the instrument prior to selecting the venue.
  • At the end of each recording session, you are provided with a CD for each recorded hour so you can listen to everything and choose the best takes to be used for the edited master.
Film Your Next Concert at Faust Harrison Pianos in New York

Faust Harrison Pianos, one of New York's largest piano dealers, is offering free concerts at their Manhattan and White Plains locations. Some of these concerts are performed by renowned musicians and others by artists that are on their way to becoming well-known.

To bring additional value to performers, Faust Harrison Pianos has agreed to allow me to film these concerts. The artist receives a DVD and Blu-ray Disc master of his or her live performance.
