The article profiles sound recordist Bruce Jackson. When Bruce Jackson got his start in the live sound industry in the 1960s, sound reinforcement was not much more than an idea--consoles were pretty basic, electronics (onboard and outboard) were limited and line arrays did not exist. Since then, Jackson has devoted his life to improving concert sound quality--as an inventor, a soundman and a music lover. At an early age, Jackson was intrigued with electronics and sound. While at Clair, Jackson mixed for many Elvis Presley tours, designing and building equipment during his downtime.
