I am a passionate sound technologist, researcher and educator. Music is the gist in my broad education and professional experience. Initially trained as a ‘Tonmeister’ I am specialised in ‘Live Sound’ working internationally with top performers from different traditions, with a focus on contemporary electroacoustic music. In addition to my music and technology skills I have developed an interest in the wider organisational, socio-cultural and historical aspects of the use of electronic amplification in the performance arts. A Master’s degree in Arts Management and Administration (2008) and a PhD (UTS 2013) aim at bridging the gap between sound technology, its creative use and broader discussions of the performance arts and society.
