Sound, PA Hire and Recording

Image Credit: Ian Wallman / IWPhotographic

As a sound engineer over the last 20 years I’ve had the privilege to work with some great artists, and in some unusual and challenging places, from venues such as the King’s Place and Southbank Centre to festivals such as Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Womad, from abandoned warehouses to major UK concerts halls.

I’ve mixed many genres from rock to folk, experimental sound art, jazz, contemporary classical, non-western music and electronica.

As well as being available as an engineer only I also run a high quality PA comprising elements from top manufacturers including D and B, Nexo, AKG, DPA, Neumann and Soundcraft.

Prices available on request.

Location recording and mixing is also available.

I can also score read and am familiar with graphic scores and text-based pieces.
