2014 Pensado’s Place Scholarship recipient Dani Munoz has been on the go ever since he graduated Recording Connection earlier this year, after apprenticing with Hal Batt at Afterhours Music in Miami, Florida. Most recently, Dani has been on tour in Europe doing Front-Of-House (FOH) mixing for none other than rap icon Flo Rida!
And since Dani speaks about his experiences and observations so eloquently, we figured we’d just have him tell you himself.
“In Europe I’ve toured primarily mixing FOH for Flo Rida, then I’ve done tours mixing monitors for Animal Collective, Tour Manager/ FOH engineer for Mapei and a few other smaller projects.
“I feel really fortunate to say that my journey in sound engineering has taken me to places such as Germany, France, Italy, Poland, UK, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Turkey and Russia.
“A lot of people don’t know, but Flo Rida is probably a lot bigger overseas than in the US. This means that shows with an artist like him can get really crazy and energetic…I think the European crowds are a lot more receptive to music and get wilder, especially in the big music festivals that I’ve had the chance to work in.
THAT’S WHY THE MENTOR-APPRENTICE METHOD WORKS!
Read just one example below about what happens when Jimi and Brian get students learning on-the-job!
“One time in Turkey, Flo came out to perform a song in the crowd (as he usually does) and things got so out of hand that we had to stop the show and Flo had to ask the people to clear a path for him ’cause he and his bodyguards could simply not move! That’s how crazy it can get. “I would advise anyone to go to any major European music festival. Not only will you have a blast, but you’ll be exposed to many different [kinds of] music and cultures in one place. “I can honestly say that hands-on, real-world education in this field is paramount. The best comparison I can make to explain this is that any driving school can teach you how to drive a car in a controlled environment. However, chances are that once you’re on the road driving on a single lane on a two-way street and have a semi-truck coming at you at full speed, swerving into your lane, only experience will help you avoid an accident, keeping control of your car and avoiding a really bad situation.” Hard working and motivated, Dani Munoz is building upon his Recording Connection experiences and connections every day!
