Electric Spring 2016

This year I was fortunate enough to get intimately involved with Electric Spring 2016 and given the opportunity to run tech for the festival’s final night.

A number brilliant artists presented their work over the week, with projects ranging from audio/visual experiences to surround sound immersion and interactive installations; all of which was enabled by the University’s HISS equipment.

Jah Wobble Live

This week I took the opportunity to mix the amazing Jah Wobble, and got to play with the university’s new DiGiCo SD8 digital desk.

Capturing Sound on Location

Out and about this week collecting sounds for the Huddersfield – Ambience & Foley Sound Library. Indoors and outdoors, town centre to the middle of the woods, all have been sonically explored.

To collect such a wide variety of sounds I’m making use of the trusty Roland R-26 portable recorder in conjunction with a Beyerdynamic MC 836 Shotgun Microphone; monitoring on location with a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770M headphones.
