London-based events specialist Orbital Sound will host a brand new training course geared towards theatre sound operators, focusing on mixing musicals. The two-day course is being staged at Orbital’s purpose-built training centre in Brixton, and focuses on the practical skills and theory behind the best-practice FOH mixing requirements of the genre. Principle tutors Marcus Wadland (UK tours of Blood Brothers, Never Forget, Whistle Down The Wind among others) and Daniel Bailey (West End productions including High School Musical, Rent, and Fame) will share their extensive mixing experience and provide a hands-on curriculum. As well as the essential theory behind mixing, Bailey and Wadland will introduce students to the latest digital mixing technology from a variety of console manufacturers, whether the application is large-scale West End/Broadway shows or smaller regional productions. The course numbers are limited to just 12, with a non-refundable registration fee of £55 + VAT required to secure a place. More information is available from Alex Waddle at training@orbitalsound.com. www.orbitalsound.com
