Sound technicians operate technical audio equipment, to support television or radio broadcasts, film or video productions, or in live performance. They use equipment to record, reproduce, mix, enhance and amplify sound. They set up, test, operate, monitor or repair equipment and work with performers and other production staff to attain the desired sound.
Many sound technicians work in the field, in venues, such as the pubs and clubs of Northbridge and Fremantle, concert halls and outdoor events. They can also work in businesses renting or selling audio monitoring and recording equipment, as well as undertaking maintenance and repairs.
