Institute of Production and Recording Faculty Members Contribute to Allman Brothers 40th Anniversary Show DVD

MINNEAPOLIS (June 16, 2014) – Dik Shopteau, Institute of Production and Recording audio production and engineering instructor, and Jeff DesLauriers, sound design for visual media program chair, did the audio editorial and audio mix for surround sound on the latest Allman Brothers Band live DVD titled “Allman Brothers 40: 40th Anniversary Show Live at the Beacon Theatre.”

“All our instructors are very talented, and we’re proud to have them involved in such cool projects like this,” says Norbert Kreuzer, campus director for the Institute of Production and Recording.

Shopteau and DesLauriers worked in the on-campus IPR Mastermix Studio where they mixed and edited sound from 80 audio tracks and approximately two and a half hours of material from the live performance to produce the surround sound audio for the DVD. IPR students were also involved in the highly-technical project, which took two years to complete.

“The Allman Brothers are a high-caliber band, and this 40th anniversary DVD was something they wanted to do,” says DesLauriers. “Dik was approached about the opportunity, and we were lucky enough to be a part of it.”

The DVD, which was released in April of this year, captures the Allman Brothers Band’s performance at the Beacon Theater in New York City on March 26, 2009, exactly 40 years from when the band first played together.
