Located in the stunning Elizabeth Murdoch Hall of the Melbourne Recital Centre 
- Euphony [Ahenk] was a celebration of Turkish culture and migration to Australia. 
• featuring a 35 piece Orchestra and visiting prolific Turkish and Dutch musicians - Smash'n'Sound was asked to deliver the FOH mix and multitrack capture of this challenging unique musical celebration. 



Smash'n'Sound has been loving the new Caravan Club in Melbourne's south east - featuring a Midas H3000 with full analog rack, this venue is a pleasure for artists to perform in and for engineers to mix in. A few photo's from Sept 2018.

Xylouris White - featuring Jim White (Dirty Three) on vintage Ludwig drums and Georgis Xylouris on Lute - this was no ordinary show

Brett Doig has installed an exceptional fully analog production to compliment the room

Jan Preston (+Nick Charles on guitar) - delivered some serious authentic boogie



FRONTIER DAYS w/ Jon Stevens
Smash'n'Sound had the pleasure to travel to the Gulf Of Carpentaria in QLD to do FOH for Jon Stevens @ Frontier Days in August. Jon was invited to close the festival.
The unique festival combines Australia’s only indigenous rodeo (what was the Doomadgee Rodeo) with a stellar music line-up and First Nation Canadian and American dancing in the middle of a huge tent city in the heart of the Gulf 300km north-west of Mount Isa.

 Additional sightseeing opportunities included canoeing  up Lawn Hill Gorge in the stunning Boodjamulla National Park with accomodation @ Adels Grove camping park (glampin!)



After a nation sold-out tour in 2017 and many summer festivals - it was great to head back out with Meg Mac featuring a couple of new band members for a one-off @ Spin Off festival @ Adelaide show grounds supporting Wombat (UK).  
Here is a lovely tour party photo...
