Tim Green spent many of his formative years mixing music for the BBC. His talk will provide an insight into the decision making process of a music balancer overcoming acoustic problems, along with the human demands of the musicians during live recording sessions at the BBC.
Tim’s talks will explain how the physical choices of layout and screening are interrelated with the differing microphone responses and electro-acoustic options on the mixing desk. This will be illuminated using the acousticians’ vocabulary of single reflections, barriers, frequency response, filters, compression and levels. His presentation will also aim to demonstrate that when the sounds are combined on the mixing desk there appears to be an interesting twist on the effects of masking that may explain a practice that helps clarity within the mix.
Refreshments will be available from 18:00.
