The September event will take place at the Electric Brixton, the soon-to-be-launched London venue located on the former site of the celebrated Fridge club.

One of the world’s most in-demand live sound engineers, Allan has toured with acts including Coldplay, Massive Attack and Manic Street Preachers. He is also an accomplished broadcast engineer, having handled sound for TV shows fronted by Jay Leno and David Letterman, among many others.

Currently working for Avid as a live sound solutions manager, Allan will address a wealth of issues pertaining to live sound mixing during the 6 September event. The morning session will find him examining live sound from artist and producer perspectives, as well as discussing preferred equipment, data management practices, and the practicalities of using previously recorded shows for virtual soundchecking.

Then, in the afternoon, Allan will use audio from a live gig to show how he achieves a true ‘tri-dimensional’ sound in mixes. He will also talk about how mixing is informed by the nature of the space – be it a large arena or an intimate live studio. Delegates will be able to see Allan’s settings, moves and techniques on the console as the show progresses.

Tickets are £28 and strictly limited. They can be purchased here by clicking on the Paypal button (ref: accounts@alchemea.com) or by contacting Alchemea directly at info@alchemea.com (020 7359 3986) for alternative payment options and to secure your place.

Allan will appear at the Electric Brixton little more than a week after it is due to reopen. Formerly the Fridge, the site has been redeveloped as a multi-purpose venue able to cope with the demands of musical performances, club nights and TV events.
