Developing best live sound strategies
After almost 20 years of working in live sound reinforcement industry, I have worked my way up from running cables and placing boxes to running audio mixing consoles and placing the energy from the artist on stage to the hearts of audiences. Working as a monitoring and front of house audio engineer, I have developed my own philosophy of creating soundscapes and strategies for getting the results quickly and efficiently. Let me share my journey with you - welcome to my exciting world...
I am committed to exploring the wonderful world of sound in live settings and in the studio and sharing my knowledge and insights with all who share my passion. I will never stop learning, as I am certain that this is the only way to grow as a professional and as a human being; I will never stop sharing - it is my passion to engage with others who work in the same field.
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.
