"you on it, cat!"

From time to time an artist will be sufficiently aware to recognise the effort I'm putting in to make their show as good as can be. When someone appreciates the quality of my work and lets me know that they've noticed, it can make my day, my week, my winter.

Tonight was a sound engineer's dream job

Have your say on the feedback loop

Well wow!

For the past two nights I've had the pleasure of working with David Sattout on his new show - a Rock Opera - built around the story of a young Strathfield boy growing up in the company of his aged and wonderful grandmother.

Delightfully written and surprisingly candid, this tale leads from the front and cries out from the back.

David's flinty delivery snaps the audience smash bang into Strathfield in the 1980's and holds them there, in a homemade block and tackle of hope, fear, bewilderment, love and transgression.

My part in the show was front of house and stage audio, sound design, and recording. It was the most interesting thing I've done for a few years. I really got to show off my skills, and for the most part I nailed it.

I had Dave's narration to reinforce, the band needed to sound very bloody good, especially given they are bloody good players and in Ellen Kirkwood's case (trumpet / vocals), writers, and I had sound design pieces to weave into the mix, to support but not intrude upon the magic of the story.

Really looking forward to touring this baby!
