MAVERICK is Coming?

ReadAudio File

Phil WardThis month: The Noise of Art

". . . add in all the possibilities of digital audio networking for the transference of audio over huge distances and time zones, exploiting its zoning, delay and mind-bending potential for spooky dislocation, and you have a whole new industry sector."

ReadCrew Cuts

Crew CutsThis month: Ben Robinson

"I used to be in bands and did a lot of the work; other bands started asking me to help them out. I ended up tour managing. I was the only crew for Slaves for a few years and we gradually brought in more people to spread the work load as the shows got bigger and more intense."

ReadRecollected Works

Recollected WorksThis month: In at the Deep End

"They explained that David would sit at a table and talk to eight miners, but they'll only talk freely if they don't think the management can overhear them, so . . . a 12-piece band would play and there would be general dancing . . ."

ReadRigging Call

Rigging CallThis month: Rescue

ReadVideo Matters

Richard CadenaThis month: High Frame Rate Cinema

"You can see exciting action or you can see performance, but you can't see them both at the same time. And that's what this format does. You can have fast movement but you can still read what the actor is doing . . ."


QandAThis month: Phil Ward talks to sound engineer and educator Barry Bartlett . . .

"One of the things we in particular can do is keep the teaching up to date with the technology. It's such a rapidly changing market, more so than ever - look how fast Dante has risen . . ."
