The title, Music and Miscellany, says it all I hope. I’ve worked in the thick of the consumer and professional audio business, and on the fringes of the music business for well over three decades. I’ve been a loudspeaker designer, design manager, project manager, technical PR, technical writer, and technical journalist. And I’m still doing stuff that falls into those categories – consulting on design and writing technical copy, features and reviews.
I’m also a self-taught bass player and recording engineer, and I’ve been in many more bands and recorded many more musicians than I can comfortably recall. Home in Brighton, UK, incorporates a modest recording and mix facility based on Pro Tools combined with Focusrite mic preamps and convertors, a varied selection of microphones and high-performance monitoring in a comfortable and relaxed environment. There’s some more about my music activities on the Music page.
Along with presenting my various professional activities, the idea with this site is to record some thoughts on music and audio that pass across my desk, through my consciousness, or via my speakers (the identity of which tends to vary).
Lastly, this site isn’t the only place you’ll find me. My Audio Icons print and t-shirt project is here, my SoundCloud page is here, my late Mum’s diary blog is here and you can find me on Twitter @aphilward. There’s also a copy of my CV here.
