Take moment and look up a scene from your favourite show or movie. Watch it and pay careful attention to the use of music and sound effects. Now watch the same clip with the sound off and see how it goes. It’s one of those things that you won’t consciously notice right away but if it’s taken away you’ll realise just how important the audio is to the feeling and visual scene.
It’s the same with events.
Often a good event musician will not be noticed, but rather be a compliment, perfectly sitting in the mix and keeping the vibe up and beautiful. You’ll notice when they stop and you’ll notice if they are playing to loudly or the wrong repertoire. It’s counter intuitive, as we are saying in events you are booking musician to NOT hear them. A perfect events musician will become one with the event experience.
Next time you are out in a restaurant or at a venue with live or background music, try to imagine it without that sound or without the musician. Or if things are feeling a bit overwhelming or empty, or tense, these are signs that the rooms aural conditions are not being handled properly.
