When the Wordless Music Orchestra takes the stage for one of its unique and critically acclaimed performances, Production Manager and Audio Engineer Richie R. Clarke uses a selection of mics from DPA Microphones to create an unforgettable sonic experience for those in attendance.
Wordless Music Orchestra is the house band of New York's Wordless Music series, which was founded by Ronen Givony in 2006, and has since performed concerts in museums, churches, nightclubs and outdoors, pairing artists from the genres of classical, electronic and rock music. Their aim is to demonstrate the fusion of these seemingly different musical worlds to create a unique audience experience.
Clarke first started using DPA in the early 1990s while working in recording studios on jazz and classical albums, and film score recordings and has a special affinity for DPA’s d:dicate™ 2006C Twin Diaphragm Omnidirectional and d:dicate™ 4011 Cardioid microphones.
“I continue to choose DPA microphones for their excellent audio quality,” says Clarke. “DPA microphones sound natural and clear across the entire frequency spectrum; for string instruments, I find there is no substitute. The d:vote 4099 stands out because it sounds great on a variety of instruments.
“DPA mics will always be front and center for all my ongoing and future audio projects. "
Wordless Music Orchestra performed at the Sydney Opera House in January 2015. Check out their performance of INXS classic Never Tear Us Apart from the SOH Music YouTube channel.
