Recording The Unique Film Sound Of Les Miserables with DPA Posted: 11/01/2013
Recording The Unique Film Sound Of Les Miserables with DPA

DPA Microphones played an integral part in recording the audio for the film version of the hit musical Les Miserables, which features an all-star cast including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Samantha Barks and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Nominated for nine BAFTA Awards, including one for Sound, Les Miserables used an innovative technique that involved recording vocals live on set with the cast singing to a live piano accompaniment played to them through earpieces.  The orchestra was recorded later in post-production, with the musicians taking their lead from the performances of the cast.
