What a Live Event Sound Engineer Does
LIVE EVENT AUDIO CAREERS IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS
Chances are, if you are reading this, you love music, and one of your favorite things in the world is attending a good concert. You’ve also probably noticed that some groups sound great in a certain venue, while other groups don’t. The difference between a good concert and a bad concert often is a direct result of the live sound engineer. So if you like to travel and want to be part of the music concert industry, then you are ready to sit at the live sound mixing board. As a live sound engineer, you are stationed at the “mission control” station for the concert. You are in charge of mixing the show for the audience, responsible for running all the sound controls to deliver the proper musical experience to the crowd. Certainly there is a fair amount of technical training involved, but the creative (mixing) part of the show is the most exciting. And don’t forget: you always have the best seat in the house!
