«We specialize in high-quality per-channel audio recording of live concerts and other events on almost any venue, whether it's a concert hall, a club or an openair»
The «Liven» company was founded in 2009 and initially worked in several areas, such as technical support of events, studio recording, live sound engineering, designing and installation of sound paths. Gradually, with gaining experience and expanding the technical base, all of the activities mentioned above quite naturally merged into a single activity — high quality per-channel audio recording of concerts. Within the last year we have recorded concerts the following bands:
Yuri Bashmet «New Russia Orchestra», групп «Aquarium», «BI-2», «Splin», «Krematoriy», «Slot», «Louna», a number of academic and jazz bands, got familiar with some of the largest concert halls in Moscow («StadiumLive», «Известия-Hall», «Moscow Hall», «MILK», «P!PL», «Б2», «16 Tons» and others), and now we are preparing to publish a series of live albums and DVD’s.
We are specialized in high-quality per-channel recording of concerts. But, since recording of a concert is a complex process, we closely cooperate with rental agencies, filmmakers, recording studios, and form an independent mix for internet broadcasting.
In addition to the bands and performers we work with:
«Navigator Records» Label
«Parametrica» recording studio
«Saturday Mastering» mastering studio
«Argo» recording studio
Gena Kravtsov rental company
Filmmakers of the «Firecat Production studio»
Filmmakers of the Vlad Zizdok’s studio
The extensive experience of concert work has taught us to cater to musicians of almost all genres, working in the studio has provided us with a variety of technical and artistic solutions, and the experience in designing sound paths has allowed us to create the most flexible recording systems for recording almost any event at any concert venue.
Choosing us, you are guaranteed to get the highest quality recorded material. One of the advantages of our service is double backup recording of the audio path, which is especially important for concerts, i.e. in situations where technical failures are unacceptable.
Liven company employs professional sound engineers and sound producers, each of whom has extensive experience not only in concert recording, but also in the related fields of sound work. This allows us to form recording teams based on the specifics of a particular event.
Some members of our team specialize in recording rock music, others in recording academic compositions and jazz, some specialize in solving technical problems. This way, the team that arrives to any event possesses the optimal skills to ensure the highest recording quality.
