Since graduating from Guildhall School of Music and Drama with a first-class degree in Technical Theatre Arts, I have worked in various areas of the entertainment world. I specialise in sound design, operation and radio microphones for theatre, opera, musicals and live events.
I always aim to produce high class outcomes with attention to detail. With a clear understanding of the technical, management and creative aspects of a project I work to create a sonic world that meets the needs of the piece.
"Charlie Smith’s tonal, emotionally sensitive sound successfully helps navigate the characters’ moods, from the depths of despair to moments of acceptance and joy..."
My diverse work in the many areas of the entertainment world range from musical theatre to opera and dance.
I strongly believe in quality audio and attention to detail whether developing a design, operating or engineering.
I will always ensure that your presentation is completed to the highest possible standard.
