RECORDINGS

The DiMenna Center provides state-of-the-art recording for large and small musical ensembles. Each room is outfitted with multiple analog and digital connections for multi-track recording. These connections are compatible with current technology and anticipate future technological advancements. In partnership with Audiosmith Digital Solutions, The DiMenna Center can outfit our studio to your exact specifications.

 

All rooms provide properly isolated A/C power and have been fitted with fiber-optics to enable audio/visual and film recording. Background Noise Coefficients are consistent with professional recording standards. The DiMenna Center’s acoustics were designed by Akustiks, an industry leader.

 

Recording highlights include the soundtrack for the Coen Brothers’ feature film Hail, Caesar!; the Grammy-nominated cast album for The King and I featuring Kelli O’Hara and Ken Watanabe; the soundtrack for James Schamus’ directorial debut, Indignation; a Grammy Award-winning album by Room Full of Teeth; and an upcoming harmonia mundi release featuring Pablo Heras-Casado and Orchestra of St. Luke’s.

Catering services are available through Neuman's Kitchen.

“The DiMenna Center is one of New York City’s jewels. I love recording there!”

—Joshua Bell, violinist

“Recordings from The DiMenna Center live up to the standard [of] the finest recording studios in the world.”

—Dean Parker, music producer

“The premier destination for recording in New York. I was thrilled to walk into this beehive of activity with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra rehearsing on one floor, classes being held on another, and my eOne Music recording project in Cary Hall. The acoustics exquisitely captured what I was aiming for-clarity, depth and resonance.”

—Anne Akiko Meyers, violinsit
