I don't know if you want to cut this off at only musical performance, but large scale speech sound reinforcement goes back much earlier for large public events, etc.


Check out the "History" thread on Rupert Neve's site.  He was building portable PA systems used by Princess Elizabeth and Winston Churchill in the 30's and 40's.

Coincidentally my dad was sent over to GB in 1936 (by ERPI) to work on the newsreel film of King George VI 's coronation.

I think pioneering work on electrically amplified  SR may date back to circa WWI.

PS: Interesting factoid.. I have a copy if the receipt and his steamship passage cost $375 round trip, not cheap in 1936 dollars.

Hi Guys, This idea is one that definitely needs some help!

I am audio technical manager for Entec Sound and Light, one of the oldest production companies in the UK, formed as a result of the owners running the marquee club and starting the reading festival.

My journalistic skills are somewhat limited, however if anyone wants to get in touch I could speak to our owner about an interview, Don't think she'd mind but I'd have to check first!

Drop me a message if its of interest

Liam
