About Dave Moulton

Dave Moulton has degrees in music from Bard College and the Juilliard School of Music. Moulton began working in audio in the 1970s. As a recording engineer, he has worked with the Concord String Quartet, jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins, folk singer Jonathan Edwards, pianist Robert Jordan and soprano Kyoko Saito, among many others. He has taught music, audio, and acoustics at a variety of colleges, including the SUNY College at Fredonia and Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he served as Chair of the Music Production and Engineering Department. Along with Golden Ears, he has also written Total Recording, a comprehensive college textbook on audio. He has also written lots of articles for Recording Magazine and TV Technology, a magazine for the pro TV industry. He was Vice President of Sausalito Audio, and helped invent their Acoustic Lens (he likes to claim, “It was my idea, that my partner then invented!”), which became featured in Bang & Olufsen loudspeakers. In 1999, Dave was nominated for a Grammy Award (Best Engineered Classical Recording). At present he is a Director of Groton Hill Music (grotonhill.org), a major new music performance center in New England. These days he hangs out on what’s left of an old farm, occasionally drives a fast car slowly, and likes to sit around and tell stories, sometimes with refreshments.
