    I’ve heard it said many times, in many different situations, that we tend to think we don’t have time to do something right, but then somehow, have time to fix everything that goes wrong as a result. We all know Mr. Murphy and his law about things tending to go wrong if there is any possibility for them to do so. But what can we do about it? For starters, correct that first part - the thing about making sure… View this post

    No matter how much dust Luke Bryan’s current Kill the Lights Tour kicks up, the party and the good times just keep rolling. With seemingly no venue deemed off-limits on his schedule, the two-time CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year is on the road with a backdrop of dates recently played or soon to come at festivals, in arenas, sheds, stadiums, fieldhouses, and even the wide open spaces of farm fields, where his annual Farm Tour returns him to… View this post

    Hans Haas is passionate about many things, particularly audio, science and technology, and brewing beer. It’s a combination that led him open Wavelength Brewery last year in Vista, CA. But describing Wavelength as “just” a brewery would do it and Haas a disservice, because the venue is also becoming a hub for technology education in the Vista area. Haas’ career has taken winding path, starting in the tech world as a network engineer. “That became boring real fast,” he says.… View this post

    Line arrays and large-format loudspeakers get the lion’s share of attention, but in reality most sound companies don’t need a large system at every event. Many can be handled with smart deployment of more compact 2-way loudspeakers, usually accompanied by a small quantity of subwoofers. While we tend to think of loudspeakers along these lines as entry-level “speakers on a stick,” numerous manufacturers have developed higher-quality models that go beyond that metric, yet they’re still below the radar in terms… View this post

    When the darkly thrilling musical American Psycho arrived at Broadway’s Schoenfeld Theatre, sound designer Dan Moses Schreier and associate sound designer Joshua Reid needed to provide a top-notch listening experience. Masque Sound was called on to deliver a custom audio equipment package that would take audiences on the ride of their lives. Set in 1980s Manhattan, American Psycho tells the story of Patrick Bateman, a young Wall Street banker who has it all – looks, money, style and status. He… View this post

    Julian Coryell’s musical odyssey began with his first guitar at the age of five. Growing up in a musical home (his father is guitarist Larry Coryell), Coryell quickly developed his own style, adeptly fusing rock, pop, jazz, blues, R&B, classical, and more. A trained vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Coryell has toured with the likes of Alanis Morissette, Aimee Mann, Leonard Cohen, Dave Brubeck, and Billy Cobham. He’s also an accomplished producer and co-owner of a busy full-service recording facility in Southern… View this post
