Well, its been a bit of a gap between transmissions, but hey, I’ve been busy freelancing and that is kinda the point Noise + Colour are trying to make with their upcoming workshop.. so I think its somewhat appropriate.
Here’s the next, promised instalment of the blog posts..this time from Perth based Audio Engineer, Janco Blom.And if you read this and think you’d like to learn more about Voiceover Artistry, Audio Engineering and/or Commercial Radio, then there’s still time to register for Basecamp. Read More
With Noise + Colour’s Basecamp, covering all things Voiceover Artistry and Commercial Radio coming to Perth this August, I thought I’d run a few questions past the collaborators and contributors to give you a bit of an idea of what to expect.
In this blog, we’ll start with Bec O’Farrell, founder and creator of Noise & Colour, who literally grew up in a recording studio. This movement - to give voiceover artists the skills to run their own business and secure long-term, paid work in the industry - is her brainchild.
Next time, I’ll introduce you to Janco Blom, resident Audio Engineer at Magic Studios which is where Basecamp will be held.
Then Basecamp presenter, and professional Voice Actor, Deanna Cooney will share her insights.
And later, I’ll share my own answers to the same questions from the point of view of the Commercial Radio Industry - the component I’ll be delivering to attendees at Basecamp.
Are you ready? Let’s go. Read More
Perth’s Araluen Botanic Park has a fine history of bedding in new festival phenomena.
Back in the early naughties I remember working at the state’s first ever Chilli Festival.
Organisers had cottoned on to Perth’s growing love of all things spicy, tapping into the zeitgeist and growing the event to what is now one of the year’s most flocked-to food festivals.
Its little wonder then, that equally big things are expected for the latest food trend to be “festival-ised” at Araluen – the Avocado. Read More

Now, don't misunderstand me, wine is still awesome, but Dads are digging cider tasting these days too. And with more than a few boutique cider houses popping up throughout Roleystone in the Perth hills, you can take dad on cider tour this father's day. Read More

It amazes me that in my near-30 year career of obsessing over musicals, that last night was the first time I'd seen Mama Mia on stage.
This is the one affectionately referred to by fans as "the ABBA Musical" (or the movie musical that Pierce Brosnan would rather forget). But the super-group's own Beni & Bjorn didn't write the story of the band, instead this fun-fest is set in the Greek Islands and surprisingly perfectly: is populated only with songs recorded & released by ABBA.
