In this article, the author discusses live music concerts and the expertise of a sound engineer behind such events. He states that it is the sense of immediacy, the energy and the possibility of something new, which attracts millions of people. However, more than the performers it is the sound engineers who are responsible for creating that excitement. He also refers to an article by Sylvia Massay, a sound engineer on how she got a studio vocal by applying some live sound techniques.
