    For a three-piece band, Chvrches (pronounced as “churches”) makes a lot of noise. Rather than depend primarily on playback to present its heavily layered synthpop-style music, the Glasgow, Scotland-based band – Lauren Mayberry (lead vocals, synthesizers, samplers), Iain Cook (synths, guitar, bass, vocals) and Martin Doherty (synths, samplers, vocals) – focuses on generating as much of it live as possible. In fact, both on stage and in studio, Chvrches is all about that “live” feel, which loosely defined is the… View this story

    Throughout his career, Kyle Hamilton has served as front of house engineer for some of the biggest names in music, past and present. Along the way, he’s seen the world and also earned substantial recognition as a recording engineer, notably for mixing, among others, Grammy-winning records by Gladys Knight and Pharrell Williams. Although Hamilton prefers the immediacy of live shows, he began his education in audio with recording. “I was always into music and I was always a technical kind… View this story

    The corporate bio on Ralph Heinz states, “as the son of Renkus-Heinz founder and chairman, Harro… he was born to design loudspeakers.” While his family has a history of being entrepreneurs, Heinz, now senior vice president, is quick to point out that there wasn’t an automatic route to the role he’d ultimately play when joining the company in 1989. “But I do treat loudspeaker design and my role in product development and management with an entrepreneurial spirit,” he adds. “For… View this story

    Under the stewardship of Scott Ciungan, Burst Sound and Lighting has grown substantially since he took over the company in 2013. But when the 23-year-old first started working at the Detroit, MI-based production firm in 2005, he was still in high school. It was a weekend gig where he played the role of “shop kid,” cleaning cables and anything else that needed it. Soon enough, however, that changed as he became increasingly involved with the company, eventually serving as then-owner… View this story

    For Sam Berkow, acoustical design, sound measurement, and audio in general are lifetime passions, the ones that ultimately led him to found SIA Acoustics, and later, SIA Software Company, the creator and developer of the SMAART (now stylized as Smaart) tuning and measurement platform that’s had a tremendous impact on professional audio. Over time, Berkow has plied his design talents at iconic performing arts and production facilities across a broad spectrum, among them SFJazz Center in San Francisco, AirShow Mastering… View this story

    Although he’s only been in the audio industry for 12 years, Dr. Adam J. Hill has packed in a huge amount of work, splitting his time lecturing at the University of Derby in the UK and working “across the pond” with Chicago-area-based Gand Concert Sound (GCS) as an audio engineer. At Derby, the 31-year-old teaches on the university’s BSc (Hons) Sound Light and Live Event Technology program (considered by many to be the leading program of its ilk in the… View this story

    To Dave Shadoan, what sets Sound Image apart are its people, partnerships built over the long haul, and most importantly, unfailing service to clients. Clearly it’s paying off and then some, with the Escondido, CA-based company serving thousands of shows annually, with numerous touring systems out simultaneously in addition to one-offs and seasonal leases. “I can’t think of a single incident where we’ve missed a truck, a load-in, or a show. If we say we’re going to do something, we… View this story

    To say Lou Mannarino has accomplished a lot as an entrepreneur, audio engineer, teacher, conductor and musician is a huge understatement. But he’s always been high energy: “My dad used to say to me, ‘I just watch you and I get tired. Can you please slow down?’” That energy, and his approach to business, are fueled by a passion for music and audio, as well as his belief that “it’s hard to compete with someone who really loves and believes… View this story

    Bryan Bell has worn many hats over the course of his career: long-time front of house engineer and technician for Herbie Hancock, MIDI system designer for artists such as INXS and Neil Young, system designer for venues such as the Berkeley Greek Theatre, and an innovator in audio and MI technology whose work was ahead of its time. Bell describes his career path as accidental – a product of a series of choices and circumstances he could never have foreseen.… View this story

    In 1906, Oscar Hammerstein I (grandfather of the famed lyricist) opened the Manhattan Opera House, intended as a venue to make opera accessible to a wider variety of patrons than was typical at the time. In the century-plus years since, it’s also hosted vaudeville and concerts of all descriptions and a wide range of special events, in addition to serving in addition to serving as a scoring stage for films and recording artists. Now fittingly known as the Hammerstein Ballroom… View this story
