Dan Malone began recording for The Phoenix Symphony in 1998. At the time, working for Clear Cut Acoustic, Dan was tasked as first engineer, recording 20 performances from their classics series. With 15 yearly performances recorded at Phoenix Symphony Hall and 5 at Scottsdale Center for the arts, Dan has been able to learn the rooms and their special characteristics to capture the best sounds possible.
Over the past several years The Phoenix Symphony has hired Dan and Mouse Recording to make recordings and prepare media for grants, tours and broadcasts. We have also had the distinct privilege of capturing The Phoenix Symphony and The Phoenix Symphony Choir’s annual performance of Handel’s Messiah.
What has been said about our project with The Phoenix Symphony.....
"The Phoenix Symphony has worked with Dan Malone at Mouse Recording on a number of projects over the past seasons and have been consistently pleased with the quality of his work, professionalism, and sensitivity to our budget. Given the increasing scope of recording and archiving our concerts and special projects, I would encourage you and Rachel to keep Dan’s company in mind when seeking to contract recording technicians.
I know he would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the needs of the Symphony as we strive to continually improve the quality of our recordings for archives, grants, work samples, rebroadcasts, internet, musician study, etc. I will similarly pass your info to Dan so that he may contact you to inquire about recording projects at alternate venues where Clear Cut is not currently under contract." - David Dredla
I did indeed receive the discs, thanks. I'm delighted with the recording and the edits you made between sections (thanks).... Great job Dan and thanks again." - Sterling Beeaff, KBAQ Music Director
