The technology behind the recordings

The recordings are made with remote-controlled cameras discreetly mounted inside the concert hall, both near the musicians and far away. The control room is located in a separate sound-insulated part in the Gothenburg Concert Hall, where the recording techniques follow the orchestra play on a variety of TV screens. From September 2019, all recordings are made in 4K, which was made possible by our sponsor Cobham Gaisler.

In order for the clippings to be synchronized with the music, there is always an expert on the spot that accompanies the score and guides the team right in camera angles and zooming of instruments.

The sound is based on classic old Decca technology with three microphones in T-shape over the conductor, a pair of microphones for balancing woodwinds and percussion, and a couple of ambient microphones in the hall. Lars Nilsson works at Nilento Studios for the processing of the sound signal and sound design.
