Epic Workend

Thursday I pulled a 22-hour work day running sound at the USAID 50th Anniversary; Vice President Biden spoke and Ethiopian artist Angelique Kidjo performed! The setup was the most stressful I've ever done; I had to setup separate feeds for the teleprompter and green room while avoiding the incandescent lighting cables run around the room which induced a buzz into our audio. All this while under severe time constraints knowing we'd get kicked out of the building for the secret service security check an hour before the show.

Friday night I tour managed for Sharam on the first stop of his Warung Live Release Tour at Josephine in DC. I organized our end of the show with promoters, set up and tore down his DJ setup and generally made sure things went smoothly in the booth. You can see pictures from the event on Glow's Facebook page. Saturday we were at Pure Club in Buffalo, New York where I enjoyed handing out the CD I worked on to some really excited fans.

Sharam Live at Warung Beach Brasil

I've been working for DJ Sharam at Yoshitoshi since April. I spend most of my time producing Sharam's Wildcast and internationally syndicated Yoshitoshi Radio show but occasionally I get involved in a really interesting project like this.
Sharam Live at Warung Beach Brasil is taken from a 10-hour DJ set Sharam did back in May. I was responsible for cutting and editing the audio and have played a significant role in the integrated marketing communications for the album putting together parts of the newsletter, website and social media plan.
It has also risen as high as #17 on the iTunes Dance Album chart.
