Work alongside an experienced live sound engineer for Thirteen North’s first live performance
2 days including Thurs 29th June
[Open to applicants in Scotland]
The Thirteen North Womxn in Live Acoustic Sound mentorship scheme aims to challenge the vast gender imbalance among sound engineers in our industry. Recent stats indicate that women or non-binary people make up just 5% of UK sound engineers. We want to see more womxn in sound! This paid opportunity is for an up-and-coming female or non-binary sound engineer to gain hands-on experience on a project using acoustic instruments.
The successful applicant will spend a day shadowing our Sound Engineer, Roderick Buchanan-Dunlop, during Thirteen North’s inaugural performance ‘Connected’ in Glasgow on Thursday 29th June. They will also receive one additional day’s mentoring.
Roderick, Teaching Fellow in Sound Design at The University of Edinburgh, is a highly experienced mentor with extensive experience of live sound engineering. The role also includes the chance to work with Composer and Sound Designer Pippa Murphy.
Thirteen North is a new string ensemble of thirteen of Scotland’s top players, conceived by violinists and Co-Artistic Directors Emily Davis and Catriona Price and directed from the violin by Emily Davis. The group is driven to bring classical music to new and more diverse audiences by collaborating across genres, artforms and cultures.
If you wish to be considered for the Thirteen North Womxn in Live Acoustic Sound mentorship scheme, please send a CV and a covering letter detailing why this opportunity would benefit you (no more than one side) to email@example.com by Friday 2nd June.
