The Sound Engineer's Apprentice - Last Week

Spent de-rigging after a Sony Ericsson company event (50 year birthday, if I remember correctly). A stressful day and a lot of driving around.

Started off the day with hanging up some light at a theater and then moved to Scandic hotel to rig up equipment for a small show (just acoustic guitars and vocal with some light, not much) with Tom Russel headlining.
During my 3 h break I went home to get something to eat, play the guitar and then get back to the hotel to de-rig.
Some music by Mr Tom Russell!

Started, around 4 pm, with rigging up the same equipment as on Wednesday at the same place (Scandic hotel) before sound check. The performer for the evening was Eilen Jewell.
After that we went to the firm to pack some of the new lights they had ordered and take them to a small disco room where it was going to be a... well, a disco...
To finish the work day off, we went back to Scandic to de-rig the equipment and pack it up.

Some honky tonk for ya'll!

And so ends my internship at MusicMusic in Örebro, Sweden. I'd say, my first real work experience.
Though, I might get some extra job from them from time to time if I'm needed, hopefully  \m/,

A Week Of Nothing

Well, this is how it looks in my lair after a week of doing... well, nothing.
I LOVE to eat and HATE to clean  \m/,

After Work

After getting home from 'work' and with a headache pumping I do what always calms my mind and eases the pain; 
take a smoke and listen to some of Slash's great sound  \m/,
 Pain is just... washed away!

Sad & Painful

This song is so good that I want to listen to it over and over, but it only brings forth sad & painful feelings...

Throw It 'Into The Pit'

Except for a little walk with some family members, I've spent the day testing guitar cables (and come to the conclusion that it's my Telecaster which is failing) and playing guitar, mostly "Into The Pit" by Testament  \m/,

Now it's time to make ready for bed 'cause tomorrow I have to wake up at 6:30...

The Sound Engineer's Apprentice - Week 7

The first of May and time for the bonfire.
We rigged and de-rigged sound- (& some light-) equipment at the Pennybridge Castle for the show. All-&-all we worked about 8-10 h for a 1,5 h show... Well, that's how it is.

Unload the trucks from first of May and clean up at the firm.

Went to Uppsala to check up on some equipment for the Armed Forces. Test the PA amplifiers and make sure they had everything they were supposed to since they need the equipment for Saturday. However, the mix table was still in repair so they'll need to borrow another for their next performance.
To be honest, it was a little interesting to work at a military base  \m/,

The Sound Engineer's Apprentice - Week 6

A very easy day. Fixed a couple of PA amplifiers... and that's about it...

I really must make an impact on people 'cause today I was forgotten...
I always wanted the be the cool silent type but come on...
"Lucky" enough I didn't feel too well so I was allowed to go home for the day.

Load the trucks for the bonfire the day after, was this days project. Nothing more.
