SSR Success Story - Stefano Cassese, Live Sound Engineer

Stefano Cassese

Live Sound Engineer

Live Sound Engineering

Stefano Cassese completed our Live Sound Engineering course in September 2014 and found himself on a European tour within 2 weeks of graduating!

Stefano spent 9 weeks touring with Anathema as their Monitor Engineer during the band's Satellites Over Europe tour between September and November 2014. During the same tour, Stefano was the Front Of House Engineer for the support band, Mothers Cake.

Once the Anathema tour ended, Stefano stayed on the tour bus for two more weeks, touring with Mothers Cake while the band supported California Breed.

From May 22nd 2015, Stefano will be heading out on the road with French heavy metal band Gojira, travelling all over Europe with stops in France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Poland, Russia, Finland, the UK and more. And if that wasn't enough, Stefano will then be heading to the USA, New Zealand and Australia with anathema in September, October and November!

Stefano Cassese:
"I moved from Italy to Manchester with a dream: becoming a touring sound engineer. I knew SSR could be a great place to train and improve my skills, knowledge and ability, but I would have never predicted that two weeks after graduation I was already on tour...not even a small one. 56 days on the road with two mind-blowing bands; Anathema and Mother's Cake!

All this led me to work closely with the best professionals in the industry, growing my network thus leading me to new challenges.

A big massive thank to you all guys at SSR, Paul Collis of STS Touring Productions and a special one, of course, to Jay Beard my tutor at SSR. You made my dream come true so I'll be always very grateful to you for that!"
