Alexander “Thorny” Yuill-Thornton II has returned to Meyer Sound to join in the company’s effort to develop digital products. Thorny, known for his work with Luciano Pavarotti and the Three Tenors, played an integral role in product development during his first stint at Meyer Sound from 1980 to ’86 when he was responsible for mechanical engineering on such products as the UPA-1, MSL-3, MSL-10 and UPM-1 and -2. In addition to his opera work (which includes stadium productions of Aida), Thorny has also been involved with sound systems used for the Academy Awards, the Grammys and on Broadway shows.
“It feels like a homecoming,” says Thorny. “John Meyer and I have a long-standing collaborative relationship, and we share the same vision of excellence and innovation in sound reinforcement design. I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to apply my real-world experience to the development of new Meyer Sound products.”
Thorny will work with Perrin Meyer and the Meyer Sound R&D team, as well as with LCS Audio, in conceiving of, developing and bringing to market the next generation of existing products, such as the Galileo loudspeaker-management system and LCS Audio’s VRAS variable room acoustic system, as well as new digital audio products.
