SADiE helps Five/Four Productions achieve GRAMMY successLondon, UK: SADiE digital audio workstations have played a part in helping independent audio production company Five/Four Productions, Ltd achieve success at this year's GRAMMY® Awards, which took place in Los Angeles on January 31st.
Five/Four Productions received a total of four nominations for projects recorded or produced by its staff. It went on to win in the Best Surround Sound Album category for Transmigration, featuring Robert Spano and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Choruses and released on Telarc. This award was given to Michael Bishop who engineered and mastered the album, and to Elaine Martone, who produced it.
Based in Cleveland, Ohio, Five/Four Productions is headed by Michael Bishop, Robert Friedrich and Thomas Moore, all former key production members of Telarc Records. Between them, they have created a unique team of audio specialists with Grammy-winning experience across multiple music genres.
Largely responsible for continuing the "Telarc Sound" over the past twenty years, the Five/Four Productions team represent today's Best of the Best in audio production and technical innovation. The company handles the production and engineering of audio and music projects for labels, artists and companies who are mainly involved with classical, classical-crossover, jazz, pop, and film soundtracks. Although it is not a studio, it does maintain post production and mastering facilities for its own use.
Both Michael Bishop and Rob Friedrich are the company's primary SADiE users, having worked on the systems for many years.
"We've been using SADiE for a long time and have moved through a number of software versions," Michael Bishop explains. "Currently we use our two SADiE DSD/PCM-8 systems for final mixing and mastering of projects for SACD (stereo & surround), CD and download release. The artists we work with maintain a high visibility on the world stage and their releases receive a lot of scrutiny from the music press, reviewers and listeners alike. We rely on SADiE workstations to maintain the highest audio integrity throughout the mixing and mastering process. We equally rely upon the extremely efficient work flow the well-designed SADiE user interface allows, especially for SACD and CD mastering."
Recent Five/Four Productions recordings include projects with Franz Welzer Möst and The Cleveland Orchestra, Caroline Goulding, Hiromi, Eric Bibb, Michael Maniaci, Martin Perlman and Boston Baroque, Garrick Ohlsson, Robert Spano and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, Christine Brewer, Eric Owen, Jennifer Higdon, Christopher Theofanidis, John Adams, Jennifer Koh, Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, David Amado and the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, Michael Stern and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Time For Three, Trisha O'Brien, Cameron Carpenter, Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Grant Dermody, Gaetano Letizia, Yolanda Kondonassis, Jahja Ling and the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, Ben Zander and Philharmonia Orchestra, and Paavo Jarvi and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
