What is a 'Good Sound'?

As sound engineers we seem to get little commentary beyond 'Sounded good, I could hear all the words' to 'Sounded rubbish, couldn't hear the words' and little in between. This talk will explore what Burton thinks is a good sound and all that entails.

The talk will take a holistic view, covering many aspects of the engineer's role. The talk will touch on a wide range of issues that impact the work of live sound engineers, and to an extent anyone working in sound engineering, either live or in the studio.
