Daryl Bornstein

Audio Coach

Daryl Bornstein, Sound Designer, is an Audio Producer, Sound Designer, and Sound Engineer for Televised Special Events, Recordings, and Live Performances.

While specializing in Classical Music, Jazz, and Theatre, he has worked on projects ranging from the first NFL HD broadcast to the infamous and ill-fated Michael Jackson TV Special at New York’s Beacon Theatre; from the Opening Ceremonies of the Nagano Olympics to the 911 Memorial Service at Yankee Stadium. And just because everyone needs to do it once, he spent four days babysitting MTV VJs in a delay tower twenty feet above the unwashed multitude at Woodstock ‘94.

Clients have included The Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, The Boston Symphony and Boston Pops, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Mostly Mozart Festival, Great Performances on PBS, and Live From Lincoln Center.

Recent projects include recording Britten’s “Beggars Opera”, producing solo recordings for members of the New York Philharmonic, designing sound for The NBC/Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Broadcast, and assisting in the recording the live performances of the Rolling Stones for Martin Scorcese’s film “Shine a Light”.

Daryl earned a BA in Music from Dartmouth College, survived four years as Road Manager for Lou Reed, and was fortunate to have served as Personal Assistant to Leonard Bernstein.
