GRAMMY® Sensation for Soundmirror

John Newton

At the 55th Grammys held February 10th, the Chandos recording of Life & Breath – Choral Works by René Clausen won in the Best Engineered Album, Classical and the Best Choral Performance categories. This critically lauded recording by the Kansas City Chorale was recorded by John Newton, Mark Donahue and Tom Caulfield with production credits going to Blanton Alspaugh who also triumphed in the Producer of the Year, Classical category. The other seven recordings listed on his nomination were also captured and mastered on Pyramix.

If that was not enough, the Soundmirror team were nominated for Best Orchestral Performance, Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble, Best Classical Vocal Solo and had a second hit in the Best Engineered Album section with Music for a Time of War with the Oregon Symphony Orchestra conducted by Carlos Kalmar. This time the engineering team was John Newton, Jesse Brayman and Jesse Lewis with pieces by Ives, Adams, Britten and Vaughan Williams.

The fortieth year of Soundmirror has certainly proved memorable with this sensational Grammy performance. During that time the technology between microphone and loudspeaker has changed many times but Pyramix has remained the favourite with Soundmirror for some while now. John Newton added; “We have been using Pyramix since the early days of SACD and have invested in quite a number of units over that time. We have recently been using the Horus Networked Audio Converter at 192 kHz and the results have been spectacular; we can see that this is a real step forward. Quite apart from the way the unit sounds, the operational convenience is a real bonus for us.”
