SOUND TECHNICIAN

June 16, 2017, 2:30 p.m.

Sound technicians are responsible for assembling, operating and maintaining the technical equipment which is used to record, amplify, enhance, mix or reproduce sound.

Sound technicians must identify the sound requirements for a given situation and perform the actions required to produce the necessary sound.

The Sound Technician in his/ her various guises plays a crucial role in everyday society. Everything from your favourite song on the radio, the sounds of a thunderstorm in a horror movie, the level of music in a shop to your favourite aria in an opera will have been crafted by an army of individuals working in the field of sound.

 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

While you do not need a degree to become a sound technician, it is important to show a good understanding of the physics of sound, technical aptitude (including an awareness of current sound technology and equipment), good aural skills, excellent communication skills and acute attention to detail.
 
A good general education will be useful. GCSEs or A-levels in maths and physics and qualifications in electronics will be particularly beneficial.
 
Having a degree or HND in one of the following subjects may increase your chances of success:
•    acoustics and music
•    audio engineering or production
•    media production
•    music and sound recording or technology
•    sound engineering
•    technical theatre.
 

SKILL REQUIREMENTS

You will need to have:
•    excellent aural skills
•    scrupulous attention to detail
•    general technical ability, dexterity and agility
•    the ability to work as part of a team
•    problem-solving ability
•    good sense of timing and swift reactions.

 

JOB MARKET

You'll learn practical sound technician skills on the job by working in sound teams or alongside more experienced technicians.

However, with the combination of rising competition and fast-changing sound technologies it is becoming increasingly important to take responsibility for your own training and level of knowledge.

You may choose to specialise in a certain area, in which case you'll need to provide proof of your expertise. There are a range of short professional and technical courses that enable you to specialise and update your knowledge.

These include programmes for both junior sound technicians and experienced technicians wanting to gain expertise in a certain area.

Employment of broadcast and sound technicians is projected to grow 7 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Growth is expected to stem from businesses, schools, and radio and television stations seeking new equipment to improve their audio and video capabilities.
