The Technology & Media Production department provides the Eastman School of Music with quality audio and video recordings of the concerts and special performances that take place in Hatch Hall, Kilbourn Hall, Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, Ray Wright Room (formerly ESM120), and other main building performance locations. Professional multimedia engineers record concerts and recitals via state of the art control rooms.
Concerts are recorded, digitized and stored on the department audio server, and transferred to CD format. The recordings are then made available for purchase to Eastman performers or composers who are on the actual recording, recordings will be provided electronically (.wav audio files). Recordings are also archived as listening copies in the Sibley Music Library.
