Interview with James "Jaska" Miller
What are you working on at the moment?
Currently, assisting Immortal Guardian on their new album before sending it out for post
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started as a musician playing guitar and piano, but realized I wasn't very good. Then, my church upgraded their production and nobody in the congregation knew how to run it. I went home and spent the next couple weeks just focused on basics and convinced the pastor to let me try. I was 16 and have been doing live sound ever since
What type of music do you usually work on?
Usually metal, but have been doing a lot more EDM tours lately
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Load in/Load out, stage setup, advancing of shows, stage plot and input list creation, mix FOH or monitors
