Live Sound Engineering

A collection of snaps from concerts, musical theatre and festival seasons.

Live Recording

Jasper Hawkins Band - Man in The Arena
Recorded live at the Theatre Royal Nelson
Raw tracks supplied to the artists and mixed offsite

Bryce Wastney & Paul Ubana Jones - The Brightest Star
Recorded live in Old St Johns Church
Raw tracks supplied to the artist and mixed offsite.

Location Recording

Tegen Fisher - Old Times
Recorded live on location in the Nelson Cathedral

Tegen was working with a videographer to create a live performance music video. While wanting to capture the essence of a single live take, budget constraints did not allow for multiple cameras, and the videographer did not want microphones to be visible.

To achieve the resulting clip we captured an unedited take with the camera in close-up on Tegen's hands. Once happy with her own performance, I packed up the microphones, left to mix the recording, leaving behind a copy of the chosen take to be used as a guide.

Subsequent wide angles were shot with Tegan playing along to the guide track, and once the video was edited and audio mixed, the two were reintroduced and synced up.

Wither Hills TV Ads Location Recording

This project was certainly an interesting experience. What might appear in the final edit to be common advertising trickery, was in-fact an intensive process to record 3 full-length songs written by the ex Powderfinger frontman Daren Middleton in response to his experience over a 'long-long weekend' on the winery.

Darren and accomplice Kelly performed multiple layers of guitars, vocals, stomp-box, harmonies, violin, hand percussion, harmonica as well as 1 wine glass. We tracked to a click so that the resulting session files could go back to Sydney where the songs were mixed and a rhythm section added to some songs.

 

Adam Chamber Festival Sound Shell

I was commissioned to design, construct and install a temporary sound shell to introduce additional acoustic reflections into the auditorium. Acousticians determined around 18 sheets of 18mm thick MDF were required around and above the performers to improve reflections for Chamber Music.

In 2017 I was commissioned to design, construct and install a temporary sound shell in the Theatre Royal because The festival's spiritual piano venue, The Nelson School Of  Music, was undergoing earthquake strengthening and redevelopment.

Acoustic Modelling

Marshall Day acousticians determined that introducing around 48 square meters of dense reflective at the usually sound-absorbing stage end. Modelling showed this would significantly introduce additional reflections into the auditorium which would improve spacial-perception.

3D Modelling

What followed was a design and pre-visualisation process to establish how to rig around 18 sheets of 18mm thick MDF around and above the performers, while allowing stage access, positions for over-head lighting and a gap large enough to bring the piano on or off as required. 

Rigging

All of the overhead panels were rigged to the counterweight fly system. To achieve the required angles, each row was suspended off 4 line-sets allowing control of the pitch of all three panels, and the yaw of the outers. The twin rear wall panels were flown of their own bar allowing the piano to be stored when not required - This always received a large 'oooooo' from the unsuspecting audience!

Tuning

Once the panels were installed as per the intended plan, we invited the New Zealand String Quartet to rehearse onstage and provide their feedback.

A collection of critical listeners including audio engineers and festival artists supplied notes from positions dotted around the auditorium. Over the next hour and a half, we tweaked the positions, altered angles and shifted each panel until everyone was satisfied. 

Team Spirit

If the occasion calls for it, I'm not one to shy away from the opportunity to dress-up - This is the entertainment business after all!

Catharsis in action!!

Pack in for @troykingi and @delaney_davidson, a show which we had set up on this very stage nearly a year ago, when the news of a national lock-down broke. With audience gathering in the foyer, the show was postponed, and pack-out began, a somber marker to what became a near 5-month hiatus in working on live events.

While we’re not out of the woods Covid-wise, we’re thrilled to be able to welcome these awesome people back to the venue. To finally see the show will be great, yes, but there’s some serious closure points on offer too.

Yesterday was very special, to support @arianatikao and Bob Bickerton for the debut of their new work as the duo Muriwai. 

Their performance was a journey of ages past and a peer into the future, featuring original waiata and soundscapes utilizing live looping to layer and showcase the diverse range of tones and textures of Taonga Puoro, traditional Māori instruments. 

It was an aural feast, and an absolute pleasure to be a part of.

Loving this ear protection from @phonak 

Comfortable, discrete and really nice sounding - considering it’s taking a whole bunch of unnecessary energy out of what reaches your ears. 

So impressed, we picked up a set of these ear plugs for each of our team members from our pal Jackie at #littlebirdaudiology

While you won’t find us wearing them while on sound engineering duties, they’re great to pop in any other time when SPL’s start getting up and it’s not critical to be exposed.

Compared to a typical foam plug, the top end is really natural which means you can still communicate with others, and hear a lot of high frequency detail, just at a lower level.  It’s a genuine attenuation, rather than the sense of isolation, which is amazing.

Shows are loud, it’s often challenging for them to be anything but. 

Whether you’re onstage, backstage or in an audience, these are a great tool to look after your one set of ears, so they will go the distance.

An exciting delivery from @mdrlighting arrived at the @nelsoncentreofmusicalarts

This represents the first major upgrade to the Nelson School of Music Auditorium lighting rig since the mid-80’s when the current fixtures were installed!!

All 20 of these modern LED wash units combined will consume the equivalent of just one current fixture, produce almost no heat for performers, and can blend seamlessly from a warm or cool white light, to fully-saturated vivid colours - enabling more emotive and creative lighting designs.

We’ve been working with the current units for the past decade of their near-40-year tenure, and couldn’t be prouder to help bring this aspect of the facility into the modern era.

Thanks to MDR Lighting for all their support, and the NSOM endowment trust for unleashing some funding. (But don’t get too cozy, there’s still more to do!)

Sound, lighting and AV duties for the 79th Thomas Cawthron Memorial Lecture last week.

As well as the live components, we provided a dedicated broadcast audio mix to our pals at @lotech.media who were live-streaming the event.

The full event remains viewable on the Cawthron Science Institute’s website.

- About -

Our children’s climate and how we can make a difference.

Keynote address by Professor Bronwyn Hayward, with supporting presentation by Te Rerekohu Tuterangiwhiu.

“As adults we are leaving a chaotic legacy behind us, our inaction is creating a precarious future of significant environmental, social, and economic risk, growing inequality and weakening democracies. Yet there are actions we can and should take now to enable a ‘long view’ in policy and science decision making.”

We are just loving reconnecting with our community of performing and technical artists after what feels like forever.
 
Last night, our good friends, The New Zealand String Quartet performed in the Nelson School of Music Auditorium as a part of their First Light National Tour - and it won’t be long until we welcome them back for the delayed 2022 Adam Summer School.

Catharsis in action!!

Pack in for @troykingi and @delaney_davidson, a show which we had set up on this very stage nearly a year ago, when the news of a national lock-down broke. With audience gathering in the foyer, the show was postponed, and pack-out began, a somber marker to what became a near 5-month hiatus in working on live events.

While we’re not out of the woods Covid-wise, we’re thrilled to be able to welcome these awesome people back to the venue. To finally see the show will be great, yes, but there’s some serious closure points on offer too.

Yesterday was very special, to support @arianatikao and Bob Bickerton for the debut of their new work as the duo Muriwai. 

Their performance was a journey of ages past and a peer into the future, featuring original waiata and soundscapes utilizing live looping to layer and showcase the diverse range of tones and textures of Taonga Puoro, traditional Māori instruments. 

It was an aural feast, and an absolute pleasure to be a part of.

Loving this ear protection from @phonak 

Comfortable, discrete and really nice sounding - considering it’s taking a whole bunch of unnecessary energy out of what reaches your ears. 

So impressed, we picked up a set of these ear plugs for each of our team members from our pal Jackie at #littlebirdaudiology

While you won’t find us wearing them while on sound engineering duties, they’re great to pop in any other time when SPL’s start getting up and it’s not critical to be exposed.

Compared to a typical foam plug, the top end is really natural which means you can still communicate with others, and hear a lot of high frequency detail, just at a lower level.  It’s a genuine attenuation, rather than the sense of isolation, which is amazing.

Shows are loud, it’s often challenging for them to be anything but. 

Whether you’re onstage, backstage or in an audience, these are a great tool to look after your one set of ears, so they will go the distance.

An exciting delivery from @mdrlighting arrived at the @nelsoncentreofmusicalarts

This represents the first major upgrade to the Nelson School of Music Auditorium lighting rig since the mid-80’s when the current fixtures were installed!!

All 20 of these modern LED wash units combined will consume the equivalent of just one current fixture, produce almost no heat for performers, and can blend seamlessly from a warm or cool white light, to fully-saturated vivid colours - enabling more emotive and creative lighting designs.

We’ve been working with the current units for the past decade of their near-40-year tenure, and couldn’t be prouder to help bring this aspect of the facility into the modern era.

Thanks to MDR Lighting for all their support, and the NSOM endowment trust for unleashing some funding. (But don’t get too cozy, there’s still more to do!)

Sound, lighting and AV duties for the 79th Thomas Cawthron Memorial Lecture last week.

As well as the live components, we provided a dedicated broadcast audio mix to our pals at @lotech.media who were live-streaming the event.

The full event remains viewable on the Cawthron Science Institute’s website.

- About -

Our children’s climate and how we can make a difference.

Keynote address by Professor Bronwyn Hayward, with supporting presentation by Te Rerekohu Tuterangiwhiu.

“As adults we are leaving a chaotic legacy behind us, our inaction is creating a precarious future of significant environmental, social, and economic risk, growing inequality and weakening democracies. Yet there are actions we can and should take now to enable a ‘long view’ in policy and science decision making.”
