THE BUS STOP THEATRE CO-OP TRADE SCHOOL
Allan is bringing his expertise to the Bus Stop Theatre for a crash course on live sound reinforcement to share as much as he can with folks who want to get a basic understanding of audio fundamentals and how they work in the live setting and will be sure to drop more than a few pointers, tips and tricks along the way.
“We will be covering everything from the ground up. From cables to mixing a singer songwriter. My goal is to get people to the level of comfort that they can go out and do this for small shows the next day and be confident in what they can do”
With over fifteen years in the music production and live entertainment industry, Allan has worked in every aspect of the business from both sides of the studio glass and stage all over north America in various recording studios and venues. He has learned the industry from the ground up.
“It’s important to not only know what your job is, but also what the artist is thinking and trying to portray. It’s their art and you need to be able to interpret that for them. This comes with being in their shoes as much as possible”
Allan has taught many interns the ropes and learned from some of the best in the industry. Working alongside of top recording and live engineers and dealing with international and local acts, he has been able to learn on the road as well as being trained by leading digital arts and community colleges and has been working steady in the industry for the last six years in Atlantic Canada as a live technician and performer.
