John Gortaire calls himself a sound chef. Just like a professional food chef who can take a bag of groceries and mix and blend the ingredients to create a delicious looking and tasting dish so too is what a sound chef does. He takes the inputs and mixes them by adding effects, processors and blending them all together to create a sound that is pleasing to the ear and to the audience. Attending a Creator Sound event is a true listening experience and a gift of John’s to be able to provide to an audience. For over 10 years, John has been the front of house and monitor engineer for The Paul Paoli Band on Long Island and if you ask any fans of the band, the sound experience is highly spoken of.
