I was pretty excited when d&b, who makes some of the best speaker systems in the world for live sound, wanted to share this post about monitors. Obviously, it's pretty important for performers to hear themselves and this video shows how we do it, with wedges and IEMs. Music is interactive, and not hearing yourself or the other musicians can make being on stage pretty uncomfortable.
This is just one part of our Stage course. Plus, thanks to Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem) and Dash Hutton (general all around badass drummer) for their thoughts on wedges and IEMs at the end of this video:
I'll have a video about my visit to the audiologist later in this blog- it'll show me getting impressions for IEMs!
