Quentin from the QUENTIN PAQUIGNON QUARTET talks about the release of his "Live in Shanghai" CD on SERGENT MAJOR label and his experience working with KER SOUND Studios Shanghai:
"Hi everyone ! Yesterday Tinho and myself went to Ker Sound Studio Shanghai to listen to the final mix of the QPQ “Live in Shanghai” recording. I can tell you that Benjamin L’Hotellier, sound engineer of Ker Sound Studios Shanghai, made a wonderful job!
When I decided to choose Benjamin L’Hotellier to make the live recording of our first CD “Live in Shanghai”, I knew it will be the right choice, the best one I could make. But I didn’t expect to get such wonderful result. The CJW venue, where the QPQ recorded the concert is a cool place, but technically talking, not the optimum configuration to make a live recording : really small stage, piano on the right side, big bass amp, bar only 2 meters aways from the stage… When I brought Benjamin to show him the place he told me ” That won’t be easy setting, but I think that I can make something out of it…” And he just did it !
The recording sounded already amazing, and the final mix before mastering has a great live sound. Benjamin is THE man of the situation in Shanghai if you need a real sound engineer for your recording. We actually already scheduled the next CD studio recorded for the first semester 2013. Because I believe that the sound engineer work is part of the quartet work, it’s the final touch, and this time the final touch is just optimum!
That being said, I think that the CD will be released soon and that is a great news for us and maybe for you ! The QUENTIN PAQUIGNON QUARTET “Live in Shanghai” CD will be released on SERGENT MAJOR Label, more infos coming soon!
Remember KER SOUND STUDIOS if you need professional sound recording, kind people to work with, and seeking for astonishing results, Benjamin L’Hotellier and his partner Greg Yu are the guys you are looking for ! Stay tuned and thanks for supporting our project!"
