A Frank Zappa fanatic, Steven Lemke grew up playing guitar and idolizing progressive rock and jazz legends, from the Canadian rock band Rush to jazz greats Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
Classical music, however, was a genre he knew little about.
“I didn’t listen to classical music until I started working here,” Lemke says. “I’m pretty open-minded, so when the other stagehands would go to the break room during performances, I’d be on the sidelines taking it all in.”
Lemke says there’s an art to recording the intricate sounds of classical music. Here he explains how he edits orchestra concerts using multitrack audio recording software.
