Tomorrowland

An amazing thing happened to me last week – not off my own merit I have to admit – in truth it was down to pure luck of having a British passport thus being able to travel to Europe at a moment’s notice (well until Brexshit anyway). Also, my boss who should have been goingContinue reading “Tomorrowland”

I’ve started so I’ll finish…

Well I don’t often bare my personal thoughts publicly, but there has been something I’ve been meaning to get off my chest for a while so here goes… A year ago I started something that meant a great deal to me, that as yet I’ve been unable to finish. I wanted to make a film.Continue reading “I’ve started so I’ll finish…”

Photoblog: Sound Engineering In India

The Freedom to be Funny In India (and some lovely Art Deco)

The elderly but spritely owner Mr Nazir Hoosein was a delight to talk to – sharing with us the rich historicalContinue reading “The Freedom to be Funny In India (and some lovely Art Deco)”

Air conditioning, Indian Celebs and Massive Roaches!

So this week I have mainly been doing shows in the NCPA. It has been pretty nice to be in an auditorium actually built for theatre with some kind of half decent acoustics. The salubrious surroundings were much more akin to the venues I’m used to in Europe- clean, carpeted, modern, proper rigging as opposedContinue reading “Air conditioning, Indian Celebs and Massive Roaches!”

The First Red Tent in India

This December I’ve had the delight of my job taking me to Goa for two very different festivals. The first of which was a yoga and mind body spirit kind of affair. As the only female sound engineer in my company (and possibly in the whole of India! -I would love to meet another!) IContinue reading “The First Red Tent in India”

“it’s a little different here….”

I did an interesting show the other day – a 100th birthday party and community celebration in a sports stadium, complete with dancers, live band, giant video screens and about a tonne of gold glitter. I was for the Jain community – a rather gentle religion who have a somewhat remorseless discipline – they getContinue reading ““it’s a little different here….””
