A group of students from our music and sound degree courses attended a Noel Gallagher concert to get hands-on experience of working on a large-scale concert.
Tour manager Steve Cheney introduced the students to the technical crew and gave them the chance to get involved with the setting up of a professional arena concert at the BIC in Bournemouth.
BA (Hons) Music Production student Stephen Hall says: “It’s such a great opportunity to see behind the scenes on an arena event and get to chat with the Front-of-House live sound producer, who shared his insights on mixing and working with a major artist over a number of years. It was interesting to hear the demands and challenges placed on the sound crew and what they needed to do each night to replicate world class sound reinforcement at every concert. Seeing Noel’s concert in the evening brought it all together for us and rounded off a really inspiring day in concert sound.”
