AUS220 - Blog 7 - Live Sound

This AUS220 series belong to an assessment from college.

  • How do you feel about the mix you did of an unfamiliar genre in a live environment? 

This will be an one-paragraph blog as I don't have much to say about other than what follows. 

I think that the best way to answer this question is by talking about the experience instead of the product. One thing is to follow through instructions and nod your head to say you understood the explanation, and another is to actually do it. It was very interesting to think of a mix in terms of focus instead of balance per se. Instead of running through a mix multiple times, in live one has to pay full attention to the dynamics of the song. For example, in the mix we did there were times when the toms would need to be more present and then come down to allow the guitar to be on focus. 

Even though I didn't have much to say on this blog, I'm preparing a few extra ones with interesting material.
