StarCity Recording Selected For MusicLab At World Café LiveChosen for audio acquisition, mixing and post-production (December 22, 2005)
Tom Emmi, president of production company Ace Entertainment and education director at Philadelphia live music venue World Café Live, has selected StarCity Recording Company, the world-class recording and post-production facility based in Bethlehem, PA, for audio acquisition, mixing and post-production of the upcoming MusicLab at World Café Live. The program will be available from iN DEMAND Networks, the leading aggregator and supplier of video-on-demand, pay-per-view and HDTV programming.
StarCitys vice president of engineering, Carl Cadden-James, has already provided mixing and post-production of several episodes of MusicLab at World Café Live for high-definition delivery. Sessions have featured top artists including Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, jazz legend Chick Corea, eclectic banjo player Béla Fleck and Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson.
?This is going to be all hi-def, distributed by iN DEMAND, Cadden-James, a surround-sound specialist with extensive background in mix and audio post-production, explained. ?Ive mixed and posted the first two episodes, but we didnt do the tracking. From here on out, well be involved in the tracking in some capacity, whether its audio supervision or physically being on the site capturing it ourselves.
Episodes of MusicLab at World Café Live are mixed in high-resolution, 5.1-channel surround sound on the Solid State Logic XL 9000 K Series console in StarCity Recordings Studio A. Housed in an 18,000 square foot complex, StarCity Recording was designed and purpose-built to accommodate 5.1-channel surround-sound production in each of its studios. All of the facilitys control rooms contain soffitted monitors and automatic drop-down microperf screens with projectors to handle lock-to-picture requirements.
?Ive been developing MusicLab on paper for a number of years, Emmi recalled. ?When the World Café Live opened, I proposed doing them there, so we taped about 10 episodes in standard-definition. I sent one of those to iN DEMAND Networks and they said ?This looks great, lets do a series. StarCity Recording is fully equipped to provide high-definition and surround-sound mixing. I will definitely continue to work with them on MusicLab at the World Café Live.
