To celebrate 25 years of microphone manufacturing brilliance DPA microphones decide to embark on a 25 country world Tour celebrating and educating audiences around the world. And it was my great honour and pleasure to accompany them on this tour, which now spilling over into 2018 with Berlin & Beijing already confirmed for 2018
Back in September 2017 I went to Japan with Anne Dudley JJ Jeczalik and the great Gary Langan to help them re-boot their Invisible Silence project at Tokyo’s Billboard Live venue, where we performed 4 shows. I made sure all the tech worked in both audio and video and made my stage performance debut. It was an absolute delight to be asked to be on stage with such innovators and pioneers, a real honour. And we will be back performing at the British Library on March 9th
Simon Law’s Look to the Sky album was released on June 23rd 2017 and it was just brilliant working with Simon again after so many years. Truly one of the nicest and most talented musician /producers I have ever been fortunate enough to work with. Nothing about mixing the album felt like work, it was just a pleasure.
Sting spent most of 2017 on the road with his 57th & 9th:World Tour which gave me the opportunity to work on some of these other projects but we did meet up a couple of times to do a little work on his musical project the Last Ship and a bit of TV promo, he’s always a pleasure to work with.
I did my first Dolby Atmos mixes in 2017, what an amazing and creative format and just as I finished my mixes Avid released full Dolby Atmos integration in Pro Tools 12, nice to be ahead of the curve, in a good way.
Working with my great friend and partner, Kipper we created yet more resource tracks for Rock Choir as well as 5 choir recording sessions at Abbey Road. Looking forward to another year working with Caroline and Rock Choir.
