    The crowd waits impatiently for the lights to come up, to hear a single voice rise in song, riding above the instruments. The vocal microphone in the singer’s hand, reinforced by the rest of the signal chain, carries a voice to thousands of eager listeners that would scarcely reach the first rows unaided.  Of course, mics have reinforced vocals for many decades, and by allowing singers to be heard, they’ve played an integral role in the rise of the popular… View this post

    WFMT Chicago is a unique radio station that is dedicated to classical music and fine arts programming, yet operates on a commercial basis. “We’re sort of a hybrid radio station, commercially licensed and owned by a not-for profit. What sets us apart from any other station in the country is the amount of live remote broadcasts that we do,” says WFMT Director of Operations Don Mueller. “We had 30 live broadcasts from different venues across the city in April alone.”… View this post

    Sennheiser’s newly launched Digital 9000 wireless system was in use at the recent Bruno Mars and Paloma Faith concert held at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre in April. This event marked the first time that the system was used for a live concert in the Middle East. In addition, a number of Sennheiser’s wireless systems, microphones and in-ear monitors were also used at the concert. “Given the singer’s popularity, Bruno Mars’ appearance in Dubai has been a widely anticipated event,”… View this post

Each week, the HouseGuests vote to evict one of their own until two HouseGuests remain on finale night. The winner is decided by the last seven evicted HouseGuests, known as the Big Brother Jury.… View this post

    I mix several worship services, but recently had a chance to enjoy a couple of productions from the audience’s perspective (a rare experience!). As an audience member, I was soon reminded of the fact that audio techs sometimes forget (or just don’t know) about audio gain staging for wireless microphones. The clipped (overloaded, distorted) sound on the wireless head-worn microphones during loud vocal passages was certainly distracting—no one wants to hear that! Audio people soon learn that every sound system… View this post

    The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, held at Reliant Stadium, is the world’s largest live entertainment and livestock exhibition featuring a regular-season world-class rodeo.

    Much talked-about UK actress-turned-songwriter Paloma Faith recently brought her distinct musical style and sizeable, glitzy set to London’s Hammersmith Apollo for a slick headline show that punctuated a successful concert tour. Faith first started making waves in the UK music scene in 2009, with her first three singles all making the top 20. She’s been nominated for three BRIT Awards, and her second album, Fall to Grace, went platinum, peaking at number two on the UK album chart in the… View this post
