Monitor Engineer - Anathema's European Tour
SSR graduate Peter Fergie has recently landed a job touring with heavy metal stars Anathema!
Peter was a student on our industry course Audio Engineering Techniques & Technology, graduating in January 2011, and will be joining Anathema on their upcoming European Tour, taking in Germany, Italy, France, Lithuania and more.
Since graduating from the course Peter has remained close to SSR, working as a senior studio assistant and passing on the technical knowledge he learnt on his studies to new students, while generally helping out in the studios and on SSR’s reception. In addition to his work for SSR Peter has recorded various local bands and assisted with a number of events around Manchester, including the Northern Quarter Street Party which featured Manchester legend Mr Scruff.
Peter’s commitment to the music and live events industry has proved to be hugely beneficial and helped secure his most recent position, where he will be working as a monitor engineer on Anathema’s upcoming European tour in support of their new album ‘Weather Systems’.
This opportunity has been provided by STS Touring, a close and longstanding partner of SSR who have provided work and career opportunities for a number of our graduates in the past.
“It’s fantastic that this opportunity became available to me now, having completed the AE/Live Sound course just over 6 months ago. It’s nice to know that SSR doesn’t forget about us just because we’ve finished the courses and this is a great leg up for me into the wider world of live sound engineering. Massive thanks to Jay, Paul and the crew at STS, and of course Anathema for letting me come along and help out. Can’t wait to get out there now!!"
