Erich Wolfgang Korngold's score for “The Sea Hawk”
IMM students were responsible for the live recording of rehearsals and concerts for the program Willkommen in
Deutschland - Entartete Musik [Welcome to Germany – Degenerate Art] featuring the Toten Hosen and the Robert
Schumann Hochschule Symphony Orchestra.
Two outside broadcast sound control units were set up for the three concerts at the Düsseldorf Tonhalle concert hall. The sound control units handled the 130 microphone feeds and the connection to the video control ensured and a detailed mixing/balancing of three live concert recordings prepared.
IMM students David Ropertz and Charel Bourkel were the artistic recording directors for the project module in the Music and Media bachelor's program.
The project was supervised by Prof. Werner Roth, Prof. Dagmar Birwe and IMM assistant professor Stephan Friedrich. The film music from The Sea Hawk by Erich Wolfgang Korngold was also on the concert program. Charel Bourkel was in charge of post-production for the work by Korngold.
