I’m Jon Gilbert, and I’ve been mixing sound for film and television for almost 30 years. What’s that? I don’t look old enough? Well, I started young……
My first job was as assistant engineer on one of those annoying summer hits that you find yourself humming for years, ask me nicely and I might even tell you which one.
After a few years recording music in studios around the country, and touring further afield with some of the leading bands of the Britpop era, I diverted my attention to the world of film and TV, and that’s where I’ve stayed ever since. I’ve done a good mix of work over the years, and I enjoy it all.
When I’m not working, I live on a small farm, with my wife and three dogs, and no, there aren’t enough hours in the day to run the farm and mix sound some days.
