“A great sound system will only get you as far as the engineers’ ability to mix.”
Brian Goddard is an audio engineer and native New Yorker. He grew up in Mt. Laurel, NJ. He was introduced to audio engineering at a young age through his brother’s company, Mas Production and Studio 420. Watching his brother working with clients such as Wanya Morris of Boyz to Men, Brandy, Young Tre and 5ive Mics, Brian instantly fell in love with the musical career and started to intern at the studio in order to learn the ins and outs of audio engineering.
After high school Brian wanted to not only further his education but also expand his musical knowledge. Brian attended both New York University and Burlington County College where he studied recording arts. While in New York Brian had many internships as an assistant Audio Engineer such as, Ear Goo Inc and Manic/Jump, where he contributed to a variety of audio and recording projects. Since his internships, Brian has worked for MTV, SQ Production, and GFL.TV. Brian decided to start his own company named Aurel DNA where he works with clients such as Omillio Sparks, Jahn Q, Young Tre, and 5ive Mics.
Life as an audio engineer is in many ways similar to being a music producer. Like music producers, audio engineers may record, edit and mix real audio sound in the studio. They also must work with singers, arrangers, musicians, record producers, artists’ management and everyone else, to try and create the best sound possible.
