Year news to share. Industry veteran, studio guru, and all-around good guy Jim Evans will be joining us as Consulting Editor in 2014, lending his years of experience to the magazine. Jim trained as a journalist at the Glasgow Sunday post and was the first editor of Pro Sound News Europe before moving on to edit and produce in-house magazines for EMI Records, APRS, and ASCAP. He has been a longtime contributor to Audio Media (see his most recent feature on live sound production on page 24) and works closely with industry organisation PLASA.


Along with the addition of Jim to the team, Jake Young, who worked tirelessly as Staff Writer throughout 2013 has stepped up to take on the Deputy Editor role, while I’ve officially become the magazine’s Editor. So, along with the New Year and new goals we’ve got some new titles and new faces. Here’s to an exciting and busy 2014.


Jory MacKay, Editor


I’VE never been much of one for New Year’s resolutions. Not to say that I haven’t made them in the past – quite the opposite in fact. Each December 31st has brought grandiose plans of new skills to learn, bad habits to drop, and relationships to rekindle (all of which are conveniently forgotten at the first possible moment). So this year I’ve decided to take a different approach and commit to two smaller, (hopefully) easily achievable resolutions for 2014.


The first one is easy: get out more, see more shows, watch more movies, and listen to more albums. With the recently announced Oscar nominations I’ve got plenty of movies to catch up on and with every


magazine, blog, and newspaper releasing their lists of 2013’s audio zeitgeists we could all easily spend the next few months searching through the tracks that slipped under our radar.


The second resolution goes hand-in-hand with the last one: slow down, digest, and reflect. With so much content coming at us, both by choice and not, it’s easy to move on too quickly to the next, more exciting film/album/game/whatever without truly appreciating the work and talent that has been put into it. In our increasingly busy lives, taking the time to turn a critical eye on the things around us is something that has lost the importance I think it deserves.
