52RDS0003 Jenny Douglas

 

20 minutes with sound engineer & tour manager Jenny Douglas.

I met Jenny on the Persistence Tour in Januar 2015 and we talked about her job and how it is to be a hard working woman in a mens world, about vegan food on tour and other stuff. Listening to Jenny is fun, she’s smiling (almost) always and has a lot of stories to tell.

52RDS0002 Allex Veldman

 

I was in Deventer and talked to Allex, who was the monitor engineer at the Burgrweeshuis. He’s a volunteer and did a great job so I asked him to tell me his story.

He’s studying electrical engineering and works as a sound engineer. With the combined knowledge of those different fields he also built some hand wired audio effects. Have a listen!

52RDS0001 Marc Hudson

 

This is the first episode of 52roads. Please ignore my crapy english. I was really excited and nervous like hell! I promise to get better. The german episodes will be easier, I guess.

I met Marc during a tour weekend at Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. He was mixing Against Me! twice just before I was the next guy on the desk.
I talked to him about his job, how he became a sound engineer and tour manager and asked him about a special mic I found at the drums set of Against Me!’s drummer.
