The theme I have chosen for work-based learning is live sound. A specific part of the live sound industry that will be looked in to in detail will be live sound engineering.
One reason for choosing this topic is that there are many opportunities to be found especially in cities like Leicester. These opportunities are not necessarily narrowed down to one type of live performance at a certain venue, for example a rock band playing at a pub.
Live sound engineering can cover many parts of the live sound industry, with different performances and venues to be engineered.
Different performances can include:
Music performance, spoken word, theatrical performance and dance performance.
Different venues can include:
Pubs, bars, clubs, halls, and churches.
With this being stated, further detail will be looked into as to what specific opportunities are available in the coming couple of months around Leicester and Rutland.
