Who we are
Stephan A. Behrens started his career as an event technician, with an emphasis on audio technology, in Northern Germany in 1984. In addition to his everyday job in the rock-pop business, he became involved with classical productions and gained experience in miking and transmitting orchestras and choirs.
In 1992 in Munich, he developed his own concept of orchestral sound reinforcement in cooperation with a classical microphone manufacturer, following the "close-up" principle: Nearly every instrument in the orchestra is picked up by a microphone and mixed with a special room simulation so that the listener has a natural listening experience.
In 2000 he founded Da Capo Orchestra Sound Deutschland. He developed the performance profile of Da Capo as a guarantor for a natural, sensible listening experience.
Working with experienced event technicians and companies, the best suitable teams are selected for each production. Since about 5 years his daughters Pauline and Luzie support him with the microphone on set and in the logistics. For over 10 years Andrea Weigel has been responsible for miking, orchestral monitoring and the mixing of productions. Meanwhile Da Capo has established a close cooperation with 63Hz GbR (Hagen and Andrea Weigel). Oliver Überbacher covers score work, microphones, studio post production and web presence at Da Capo.
Da Capo provides a complete set of equipment, covering all facets of miking, mixing and monitoring of orchestras and choirs.
