What Live Show Recent Or Past
« on: February 03, 2011, 06:50:53 pm »

What Live Show (recent or past) would you have liked to be a part of the Production Crew (Head Sound Engineer/Soundman/Provider of Sound Gear etc? What show and what Part would you have liked to have played?
If its on YouTube post a link!

I marvel at the simplicity of this show but I fear I would have only qualified to be a Roadie. Maybe not even that! LOL
Here is my choice.
Eric Clapton's Live Show singing "Layla"

I would love to have worked Woodstock-the origional.

My career has been all about getting systems to work with duct tape, band aids, bubble gum, paper clips and so forth.

Sometimes I amazed myself with what I did to pull it off.  And learned a lot in the process. Very Happy

I'm happy to say that I've actually done most of my "dream" shows and actually got to mix some of them.

And in my youth we did a lot of it by the seat of our pants with whatever gear we could scrape together.

The one that I wish I could forget, for an number of reasons but an experience that taught me a lot however was...

The show that is still most memorable to me is the one that got me thinking "I want to do that".
Age 12-13, sitting about 5 rows back behind FOH in the Christchurch Town Hall with the family to see Phantom of the Opera.
I remember vaguely, seeing some dude playing about with stuff on a thing that looked like a prop from Star Trek and not thinking much about it. When it came to the song "Music of the Night........"  that was the first time I ever remember having the feeling of chills down the spine and the hair on my neck standing up caused by a piece of music.  Amazing sound, just amazing.  
The verb used on the vocal I have never heard the same again but thats what did it for me.  I can only describe it as a shimmering ball of reverb that seemed to be floating above the stage (weird description I know), almost a chorused reverb with a long decay which you could almost point to in the room (strange whats gets us going).
I knew that this guy was making the sound happen and I think I spent the rest of the show watching him as much as the stage.  Put my name down as soon as for the next school production to help with sound and here we are now.
And if I had to pick a show that I would have liked to be part of???????     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDkBzkA9L4s&feature=relat ed  this would be it I think (not that it is likely to happen  Sad .

cheers.
