When aspiring to become an Audio Engineer, you can’t get much better than working on an Adele or Justin Bieber concert in front of a 90,000 person crowd!
When JMC’s industry-connected lecturers presented the opportunity to their students to join the crewing company working on their concerts, our Audio Engineering students didn’t have to think twice.
Students carried out the ambitous task of coordinating the lighting and pyro techniques (which, if you saw the Bieber concert, you know was a HUGE job!). JMC student Samantha Bowden describes, “My live sound class at JMC Academy helped in regards to stage plots and handling the technical requirements of the audio gear not only at these events but all of the others I work across.”
“Adele stage setup was something special. The fact that the stage was in the centre and the Lights, PA and Video went all the way around a full 360° made it a unique rig to work on. Words can't describe the atmosphere Bieber’s fans created. Working at these 2 concerts has taught me that in this industry, there will always be something new and exciting to surprise you.”- Hayden Fenton, Audio Engineering Student adds.
JMC is proud to consistently provide students with work opportunities throughout their course and after graduation. “Through this crewing opportunity, I’ve worked on Guns n Roses at ANZ Stadium, Dynamo, Andre Rieu, Flume, RnB Fridays On Tour, Slipknot and so much more. The next gigs I'm booked for include Dixie Chicks and 21 Pilots.”
