Tribeca Flashpoint Recording Arts Department welcomes Sennheiser & Neumann

Chris Spahr

Nick Eipers

Chris Sphar, a representative from Sennheiser & Neumann microphones, led a workshop at Tribeca Flashpoint as part of the company’s educational division, “Sound Academy.”

Chris Spahr was joined by Nick Eipers, the president and recording engineer of “Chicago Sessions” – a local Chicago jazz music label. The workshop was intended to expose our students the process of managing and executing a recording session from the perspective of a microphone manufacturer and a Jazz music recording engineer.

The Jazz combo, lead by pianist Matt Nelson, was recorded with using only Sennheiser and Neumann microphones.

During the workshop, Chris demonstrated Neumann’s new digital studio microphones “Solution-D” and the new Sennheiser MK4 [below]. These microphones were placed along side other industry standard microphones for the recording session so students could compare by listening to the results first hand.
