Researching Live Sound
In this seminar Dr Mulder will give a brief overview of my ongoing research into live sound practices. An example, historical case study of a 1956 Elvis’ concert will be followed with a discussion of my current work for the WHO Make Listening Safe initiative with respect to hearing damage risk mitigation in music venues.
Jos Mulder is a passionate sound technologist, researcher and educator. Music is the gist in his broad education and professional experience. Initially trained as a Tonmeister, with a minor in Jazz-piano) he specialised in live sound working internationally with top performers from different traditions, with a focus on contemporary electroacoustic music. In addition to music and technology skills he developed an interest in the wider organisational, socio-cultural and historical aspects of the use of electronic amplification in the performance arts. A Master’s degree in Arts Management and Administration (2008) and a PhD (2013) looked at bridging the gap between technology, its creative use and broader discussions of the performance arts and society.
This is a virtual seminar that will be held via Zoom
