Welcomings

Hello there,

Welcome to my website and blog. This is going to be used as an opportunity to develop my online presence in accordance to Edinburgh Napier University’s module Production & Professional Practice. You will find written blogs, news, pretty photos and tutorials all based upon sound production values. I will aim to update this weekly, however as I’m new to blogging, it may not pick up for a while or never.

As for myself, I am assigning myself as a live sound engineer, producer and studio engineer. Through the next year, I will learn a great deal about my trade, and so I present to you my virtual learning curve. Through posting blog entries, I reckon it will tell me a lot about myself and how I connect my words with other people (you, yes you). It will also reinforce what I’ve learned by putting it into words – It’s all very well you can do it, but could you explain how it’s done?

Musically, I don’t have many static influences, as my taste changes all the time. Like many, I’m one of those people who simply cannot answer “What’s your favourite band/genre/microphone?”. If it sounds different, has a good dynamic, lets off a nice vibe (corny, I know) or generally alters my mood, then I’ll think it’s great.

I love things that sound daring or have been produced differently. There’s no right or wrong answer in this industry – everything is based on subjective judgement and it is my job to produce work that appeals to the listener, but delivered in a unique way.
