On October 30th, 2005 during a Sunday evening at the First United Methodist Church in Clearwater, Florida, Tom Hoehn gave us a special treat. He took the bench of the magnificent 4/93 Rodgers/Ruffatti/Wicks Church Pipe Organ at the church and played for a silent movie presentation of the 1925 box office hit, Phantom of the Opera.

This was no minor event. Long in planning, ATOS Vice President Bob Davidson was there to introduce the movie and Tom, who came out on stage dressed in a black cape as he sidled up to the massive organ.

Phantom of the Opera

The Walnut Hill Productions mobile recording crew was there to capture the event on Tom's Dell laptop computer, using two Sure PE48 microphones on boom stands feeding a 20x2 Electrovoice/Dynacord mixing desk. Also, a digital video camera was situated on a tripod in the balcony to film the entire event, from the time folks began to arrive until they started exiting the building. The Bone Doctor engineered the event, doing all post-mastering work at the Walnut Hill Recording Studio.

Recent Recordings During Church Services

Below are some tracks sent in from church services Tom has played. These recordings were made using a new system consisting of two electret condenser microphones and a Berhinger USB mixer hooked up to Tom's Dell laptop computer running Sony SoundForge 7. We removed some noises and normalized the volume. There are a few glitches we could not remove.
