Two years ago, Tevin Sudi was undertaking Architecture at a local university. However, his passion was in Sound Engineering. He quit Architecture and convinced his mother to allow him to join ADMI's Diploma in Sound Engineering. His passion, talent, and hard work paid off.
Juma Tayari - Core Faculty Sound Engineering
We always get asked, what does a sound engineer do? Who is a sound engineer? We decided to answer these questions and many more by talking to Juma Tayari, a Sound Engineer, CEO at Tayari Soniq Solutions & Core Faculty at ADMI's Sound Engineering Department.
Here are the insights that he shared about this exciting industry.
What does a sound engineer do?
A sound engineer captures audio performances or sound effects, edits and adjusts levels by adding processors and equalising to create a good sounding mix. They play an important role in music and film production.
Did you know that humanity's first recording was done by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville in 1860 in Paris? Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville invented sound recording when he thought of a machine that does for the ear what the camera did for the eye. He called it a phonautograph and it inscribed airborne sounds onto paper, over time, to be studied visually. These recordings he called phonautograms. These phonautograms however could not be played back, they were simply inscriptions of the sound captured.
How Can You Improve on Your Live Sound Engeeing?
Despite using state of the art equipment, having a lead singer who hits an amazing falsetto, and an amazing guitarist who slashes all the right chords, the crowd may still not find your concert enjoyable. Why? Because music is an art, a composite of both vocal and instrumental sound and as such, it must have a clear technique that captivates our audience.
