Midlands Branch Evening Meeting
Mixing the Spill – an Acousticians view of a Music Balancer’s lot
Tim Green,   TGSacoustics
Wednesday 10 May 2017 - 18:00 for an 18:30 start
University of Derby, Heap Lecture Theatre, Kedleston Road Campus, Derby, DE22 1GB

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.

Attendance is free, no need to book, everyone welcome.  CPD certificates can be provided.  If you have any queries please contact heather.billin@aecom.com. As is traditional for IOA Midlands Branch meetings those attending are cordially invited for a meal at a suitable restaurant after the meeting.
