BRIAN WONGRECORDING ENGINEER
What inspired you to enter into the career you’re in?
Back in secondary school, I would always hang out with a couple of musicians which made me want to pick up an instrument myself. I have always been increasingly interested in music and audio after that. After getting myself into live sound, there was no turning back for me.
What are your fondest memories of your time at SAE?
Having to work with people of different backgrounds and genres. It allowed me to learn about different music production techniques and approaches that I have never seen before.
Are you able to shed some light on how studying at SAE lead you to where you are now?
I was able to work with people from different countries and backgrounds. Through SAE, I was able to extend my network and reach out to even more people than I could ever before.
What are your career highlights?
When I was a live sound engineer, I did monitors for a Japanese singer, Majiko and I was able to work on multiple events featuring big international names.
What projects are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently working in an international dubbing/subbing company, SDI Media and working on a short film which will be shown in a couple of film festivals in Taiwan.
What advice would you give to students aspiring to become successful in their field?
Keep doing what you love with passion. Stay true to yourself and let your art remain art.
