Prism Sound’s Mic to Monitor educational seminars will make their first visit to Australia this year as part of an extensive tour program that takes place on three continents.
Targeted at music production students, hobbyists and professionals, Mic to Monitor aims to dispel the many myths surrounding the recording process. The events answer those all-important questions such as what makes great gear great, what does it take to become a successful and in demand audio engineer, how do recording professionals tackle different aspects of their productions and how is a hit sound achieved?
Producer Govinda Doyle
Each seminar features presentations from recording professionals who will answer audience questions on recording techniques. There are also presentations from the pro audio equipment manufacturers that are supporting various events, including monitor brand Amphion and microphone partner Audio-Technica, plus an opportunity to demo recording equipment.
The Australian leg of the tour will kick off on August 8 in Melbourne in conjunction with the Abbey Road Institute, which now has training centers in Paris, Melbourne, Berlin and London.
The tour then moves to Sydney’s JMC Academy on August 10, followed by the Queensland Conservatorium in Brisbane on August 15. Guest speakers will include ARIA award winning producers Mitch Cairns and Govinda Doyle, world renowned mastering engineer Leon Zervos, and sound engineer and audio educator Greg Simmons.
Graham Boswell, Sales Director of Prism Sound, says, “Extending our Mic to Monitor brand to Australia is really exciting and we are delighted to once again be partnering with the Abbey Road Institute, another internationally acclaimed brand. No matter where you are in the world, there are always new recording tricks and techniques to be learned, even by people who are already making a successful living in this field. That’s what Mic to Monitor sets out to achieve—to impart knowledge by providing a vehicle for recording professionals to share their experience with the next generation of audio engineers.”
Mic to Monitor returns to Europe and the U.S. in the autumn with events planned at the new Abbey Road Institute in Amsterdam in October and Music Expo in San Francisco, which takes place in November. The tour finishes in London in December where Talvin Singh OBE will be among the guest speakers.
Places at Mic to Monitor 2016 events are limited and are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
