So, this trip to Europe that I just took – two weeks traveling around Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland – was part pleasure and part business. I was visiting my brother in Munich, but was headed to Italy to meet with a client. My mic and pre-amp were not on my packing list, because I knew I was going to be traveling quite a bit, and didn’t think I would have time for jobs or auditions.
As it turns out (see earlier post), my brother’s practice room was actually a sound booth, so I could have worked while I was in Munich – and a good audition did appear in the In Box. But there was a lot so see and do there before I headed off to Italy to meet my business associate.
I did check for jobs and auditions each day – had a loaner BlackBerry with global service – and was able to postpone most of the projects that popped up until I returned. However, one regular client needed something right away and as good luck would have it I was in Reggio Emilia that day and was able to record the project in MediaPiu Studios. Even managed to get an audition in as well.
