I haven’t ever had anyone come to me and complain about my mixing so far. But I’ve been involved with arsey people and people who complain about equipment or to the engineers I work with just because they want to appear they know something or appear superior. I’m going to take several copies of this photo and hang it around the fort I build myself at front of house of monitor world :)
I was lucky enough to work with a band I absolutely love last week. Testament played the Ritz in Manchester, I worked as change over crew and patching bitch for the monitor engineer lol He did me a foh mix in my monitor so I could listen to the gig at side of stage. Good times. Good gig! Chuck is terrifying in person, looks real mean. Lovely bloke though… Or will I get in trouble for saying that? Does it go against the image?
-Flying solo on friday. My first proper gig alone, font of house and please the client and all that, Grown up job this time!!… Terrified lol
Check it! Last Saturday was the Real XS day festival in Manchester. This is the preparation vid, us getting everything ready. Me and Dom on Second stage foh. Check out the sand we had to cart all the gear over though! And kids kept digging up our multi cables! Wasn’t even funny! :) Enjoyable day though, glad I got to work it.
That blonde one is me.
Always fun mixing FoH and Monitors for a live band…behind the speakers lol function rooms suuuuuuuuck! @Hilton hotel Manchester. Whilst everyone else gets wasted on a saturday night, this be what I do lol
Also, note to self… stop fuckin’ slouchin’!
Ha just noticed… totally looks like that guys messing with the mic. Hes a photographer and he just happens to be in line with the drum o.h. mic, not like it makes a difference, its just amusing.
Gutted about the quality of this photo! But this was a full length rehearsal of the Devin Townsend Project Show end of 2011. I got to practice studio work and mixing on them in Manchester.
1000(aprox) Choir members in the Welsh Male Voice Choir at M.E.N arena, Manchester. Not my personal taste but without a doubt sounded amazing. Also, first time for me personally getting involved in flying the turbosound tops flying just to Stage Left and Right of the truss/scaff. (Not shown up to well on photo, but that’s because a lampy took it)
