Audio & Music Production Level 6 Faithless Trip
Students from Bucks University attended two Faithless arena shows at Birmingham Barclaycard Arena (The NIA) and Alexandra Palace on the 2nd and 4th of December. Faithless have recently had a number one album with Faithless 2.0
Following an extensive case study of the technical requirements of a touring arena show, the students, who are in their final year on the Audio & Music Production course, were taken through audio setup by Front of House Sound Engineer Mark Kennedy. Mark uses the latest Solid State Logic 500 digital console to mix 56 inputs from the stage.
Following the guided tour of the console and the l’acoustic sound system, the students were taken on a tour of the Stage, Monitor System and Radio Equipment. The students also had the opportunity to mix a recording of Insomnia through the PA
Stage Manager Toby Plant and the backline crew then took the students through each departments role on the stage before the band arrived to Sound Check.
All were then able to watch Mark mix the show from the Front of House position.
