2016 Year in Review, Part 3 – Pickathon
2016 was an incredibly challenging year for me, but also a very rewarding one professionally. I continued to expand the realms and scope of audio-related work that I do, worked on a bunch of great records, and toured with some incredible musicians. I’m so grateful for, an always delighted by the variety and quality of projects I’m able to work on. It keeps me engaged and in love with my work.
To keep these posts readable, I’ve split the year into 3 parts, each devoted to a different aspect of my work life.
This past year, Nalin Silva and I took over the live sound reinforcement end of Pickathon, putting us in charge of coordinating all of the audio for the festival. It was a huge leap in complexity and logistics for both of us, but I’m really glad we did it. I’ve never worked harder in my life than I did at Pickathon this year, but it felt great to pull it off. Of course, we couldn’t have done it without our stellar team of engineers and volunteers, nor without the various other kick ass coordinators and crew chiefs at the festival.
We have continued mixing recordings for online video content post-festival. Some of the recent videos from 2016 festival:
