audio & acoustics

I've been doing professional audio engineering since 1983
 including most of the outdoor events in Canberra, Carols in the Domain in Sydney (engineer) and even the Pope! I have mixed everything - punk, jazz, soul, country, folk, blues, classical, opera, choirs and stage productions - I've also done a fair bit of recording stuff, though mainly live recording.

I have extensive experience in acoustics and acoustic treatment as well as system setups to mitigate acoustic problems. I redesigned and fitted out the acoustic treatment, audio equipment and control systems for all the committee rooms at Parliament House in Canberra.

I'm available for hire as a consultant, audio engineer for a gig or production, or for recording. Call me on 0418 482 545 or email

CSO Prom concert 2005 using DiGiCo desk and my "StingRay" PZM microphone array above the conductor with close micing of the firsts and seconds. The above DiGiCo desk was rather flakey with the sun on it and the controlling surface hung durring the first half, just before the interval - thankfully I had a good balance at the time so I made it to the interval when I could re-boot it.

I've done the prom quite a few times, one of the best was with the wonderful DigiDesign D-Show - rock solid desk and every feature where you need it.

Quadraphonic system with phase cancellation outside of dance area - extremely effective with 120db in dance area and droping to 80db within 50 m! The sound was awesome with very low distortion and fantastic fidelity comments for the crowd were "Amazing sound, I've never heard such good quality at a rave". We used Bose 802's on trees on four corners with Subs at the base of each tree pointing in. We used equidistant delays with phase adjustments to make it all line up and to cancel out the bass outside the quad. Front fill was used to give stage presence.
