Busby Marou Live @ Judy’s Place
Millie Tizzard Live @ Judy’s Place
Neighbour Live @ Judy’s Place
Ryan Keen Live @ Judy’s Place
I’ve been recording a song live at each Judy’s Place, and mixing it in the studio. What an honour to record Ryan Keen!
Monitor Engineer for Busby Marou and Darren Middleton
Did monitors for a full house show at Eatons Hill. I told Darren Middleton that he was playing at the first gig I ever went to as he walked on stage, got me all emotional!
Technical Production Manager for Fresherome
I’ve been organising PA and lights for some large events recently. This one was for a UQ college event.
Sound Engineering in the Queensland Conservatorium Theatre
Here’s the view I had from behind the console at the Queensland Conservatorium Theatre. What a spectacular looking and sounding venue! In theatre productions, the stage manager reads sound, stage, and lighting cues through the talkback system. If you forget what is happening next, there’s always someone whispering in your ear to remind you which is great!
Sound Engineering for DeepBlue
I mixed an exhilarating performance for contemporary string act DeepBlue in this massive venue (even Campbell Newman was there!). There was stilt-walking, unicycling and crazy dancing happening all while playing violins, cellos, and double basses. My job was to mix the nine-piece act as this was happening, with each member wirelessly sending signal from their instruments, and receiving a mix in their in-ear monitors.
Live Sound for Odyssey
I did sound for Odyssey recently, who are one of Australia’s top corporate bands. They are a well-oiled machine and a pleasure to work with.
Recording Guitars at The Palace
I‘ve been working on a very exciting EP recently. The artist is a secret for now, but keep your ears open.
Tour of Central Queensland as Live Engineer
I’ve been touring around Central Queensland as a Live Engineer for a world music band. We went to Mount Isa, Cloncurry, Boulia, Winton and Longreach. I got to work with some fantastic musicians and employ some bush sound engineering tricks to keep the shows alive!
I was the lecturer for Griffith’s Creative Music Technologies 1 course held at Canterbury College school this Semester. I taught digital media, songwriting, and digital music creation during the weekly class.
Caitlin von Berky Live in the Studio
Caitlin performing live at The Palace. No edits, no overdubs, just what you see here.
I engineered a live recording session for indie/alternate band Black as Blue. The session was filmed so there were candles and lights everywhere – looked and sounded a treat.
The tape machine at The Palace has been fully refurbished, so I’ve been experiencing recording to tape for the first time! It’s a lot of fun and it sounds great.
St. Helina Island Installation Project
Sound Powered LED Project
After much research and experimentation, I have discovered a way to turn the energy of audible sound into light.
In this project, I wired 98 piezoelectric microphones to power 32 LED lights using only the energy of sound. Together, my colleagues and I connected this to a MIDI controlled exercise bike to make an interactive sound installation.

Rin McArdle – The Island
Here’s a live tune of Rin McArdle’s that I mixed last week. I met Rin on tour as sound engineer for The Strums, and was blown away by the size of the voice that came out of someone so short! Since then I’ve been mixing her live and we’ve been recording in the studio (where she made me cry with an incredibly powerful song that she wrote on the spot). We’re also making exciting plans for things to come!
The Australian Voices – We Apologize
I was fortunate to record this project with The Australian Voices this year. Very cool stuff!
How To Spell Dubstep
I did the music for this short gag animation by WillVa. Received the daily 3rd place medal on the NewGrounds website, and was front-paged for a couple of weeks!
A Shiny Minecraft Tale
An animation by WillVa that I did the soundtrack to. Received daily 2nd place and weekly 5th place on the NewGrounds website. Over 4 million views on YouTube as well.
