About

Patrick Allen read Electroacoustics at the University of Salford and trained with BBC TV and Radio. He has over 25 years experience of professional audiovisual production.

Patrick  founded Opera Omnia in 1993 and is involved with all projects. He enjoys working with a wide range of performers at all stages of their careers, from those starting out in the profession through to internationally renowned artists.

His role on location varies depending upon the project. For straightforward music recordings such as solo or chamber recordings he normally has the joint role of producer and engineer, but for more complex orchestral recordings he takes on the role of producer or engineer. He has worked for many record labels and broadcasters including Orchid, EMI, Decca, Naxos, Champs Hill, Wigmore Live, BBC, Deutsche Gramophon and Classic FM.

Similarly, for simple filming projects Patrick can take on the role of director, cinematographer and sound recordist but for more complex projects he is assisted by a team of talented audio/visual engineers.

Patrick combines his interest in the creative arts with a professional career in acoustics. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Acoustics (FIOA), a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and Director of Cass Allen Associates, an acoustics consultancy firm. He is also a Director of Hazard Chase, an artist management company.
