Interview with Nikotrip

  3. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  4. A: I can't find one

  5. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  6. A: Once I was invited to play guitar at a venue with a nine people band which included cello violin,drums and a lot of other instruments.. It was a complitely inapropriate venue for live performances. No sound design. It was supposed to be a theater but it felt more like an abandoned parking lot. Also it had flouded the night before. The sound was awful there beyond any imagination.The sound engineer of the venue could not be more careless so I decided to bring my gear and set up the sound from scratch. I told the sound guy not to touch anything on the console.Just enjoy the gig I removed all the bad travelling frequences that bounced in the venue. I had to do a lot of work to get the sound right. Compression, masking of instruments e.t.c Eventually we could not believe how good the sound was during the concert and how succesfull it was despite the last nights flood and that night's heavy rain.
