About Me

Ales.jpg

HI, MY NAME IS ALes

I started out as a musician in a school band at the early age of 10. I was always the one that wanted the band to sound the best, even with the very limited gear and knowledge. By the age of 14, I was introduced to the world of music recording. Working in studios, the mysteries of sound became unveiled one by one and I started mixing and experimenting on my own. I also became a cable runner and hired hand for a local PA rental company and by the age of 17 started doing FOH mixing for local acts. I was hooked and it became my passion. Besides doing freelance live audio work, I started my path in the audio business by setting up my own home studio and getting my first job at a retail store, selling live audio and studio gear. Jobs have come and gone, but my passion for audio grew. I was fortunate enough to work with some of the renowned world acts, and am currently technical director and monitoring/FOH sound engineer for one of the biggest rock acts in my country, Siddharta. Currently, I am devoting my time to getting proficient at sound system setup and teaching audio techniques, tips and tricks.
