    The stage adaptation of War Horse has transfixed audiences around the world and garnered multiple Tony Awards, including Best Sound Design of a Play in 2011 for sound designer Christopher Shutt. While the recognition is satisfying, Shutt says, he tends to measure the success of his work by the average audience member’s impression of a show. “That they enjoy what we do, that’s the greatest pleasure; that and when the people I work with say, ‘You did a good job.’”… View this post

    When creative media and design firm Ambient Digital Media, a Post Modern Group company, built out a new audio post production facility recently, there was only one choice for the studio furniture: an Argosy Console Inc.  Mirage D-Command desk. The new room—the first in-house audio post suite to be built by Ambient—is being used for mixing, editing and QC of a range of projects, from broadcast television work through voice recording to value-added materials for Blu-ray Disc and DVD releases.… View this post

    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

    A concert sound system is, in reality, two completely separate sound systems, joined at the hip by a split snake. Each system requires a skilled engineer, but the skill-sets between the two differ vastly. The thing that baffles me is how ill regarded the position of monitor engineer is among my brethren. It can be easily argued and defended that the monitor engineer works twice as hard as everyone else on the crew, unless he/she is lucky enough to have… View this post
