Live Sound Technician

Concert sound is one of those things you never think about when it’s going well. And in that way, live sound technicians are having their best days when the ship is running smoothly and no one is focused on the sound coming out of their speaker systems. The job of a live sound technician is oversee the audio production at live events. The settings may vary — arenas, amphitheaters, concert halls, courtyards — but these audio experts have to be on the ball when it comes to sound checks, the positioning of audio equipment, the live sound mix, and the responsiveness of the various tech bringing the show to life. Live sound technicians should be music and audio purists while at the same time knowing they must be flexible to meet the demands of artists, performance spaces and any technical difficulties that may arise.
