Entrada was recorded at First Presbyterian Church of Reading, Pennsylvania, on the 47-rank Patrick J. Murphy and Associates Pipe Organ (Opus 47) installed in 2004. Recording took place on April 8, 22, and 29, 2017. The organ’s grand scale and the sanctuary’s large size made the project ideal for binaural recording. The binaural technique provides a superior stereo recording through speakers but also offers an expanded sense of space and location when one listens through headphones. The project utilized the 3Dio Free Space Pro II Binaural Microphone and was recorded in 24-bit 96-kHz High Resolution Audio. David S. Wagner, the artist, is an accomplished organist, pianist, and choir director who has been a church musician for over 40 years. The record was released as a CD on June 8, 2017. For the Entrada project, Scott acted as producer and engineer covering all aspects of album production from recording and mastering to photography and artwork design.
