My name is Steve Bunting and I am a professional freelance FOH / Monitors live sound engineer, systems technician and audio consultant specialising in live music mixing. I am based in Stockholm, Sweden but maintain close ties to the UK and travel worldwide.
I offer a professional approach to all live sound applications, with considerable experience drawn from a diverse range of events including bands, clubs, tours, functions, conferences, theatre, orchestral, comedy, seminars and festivals in a variety of venues. I have hands-on experience of an extensive range of professional audio equipment and a thorough grounding in audio engineering theory but come from a musical background so smoothly combine the technical and creative aspects of audio production. My extensive contacts in the industry permit me to select the highest quality and best-suited crew and suppliers for a particular event. Above all, I take great pride in my work and have a great deal of enthusiasm for my job.
I hope that this website will give you an idea of my experience and capabilities. Please feel free to learn more about what I can do for you by taking a look around.
Thanks for taking the time to visit, and please feel free to contact me.
Eddie The Eagle 'Fly' Album Launch
Wednesday 23rd March 2016
Last week I was hired to mix monitors for the 'Fly' album launch, a soundtrack of songs from the newly-released film 'Eddie The Eagle'. We rehearsed for 3 days at SW19 studios in Wimbledon, the show was held at One Mayfair in London and featured a house band playing with Gary Barlow, Hollie Johnson, Paul Young, Howard Jones, Tony Hadley, Nik Kershaw and Go West. It was hosted by Dermot O'Leary. I mixed the show on a CL5 with Shure PSM1000 IEMs and d&b M4 wedges. YouTube | ITV's This Morning Feature

I am currently looking after Rick Astley's monitors for several one-off dates. The first two took place last week in the Moon Palace Arena in Cancún, Mexico and the next 3 will be in Viña Del Mar/Santiago, Chile. The band features 6 musicians and Rick, all on IEMs with additional wedges on the front line. We are using local gear everywhere, including PM5D-RH and PSM900s at monitors. The set features all the hits, material from his forthcoming album as well as Rick's take on more contemporary numbers!

I have just finished a six-week residency at the Rival Teater in Stockholm, interspersed with a couple of shows in Gothenburg with Swedish comedians Özz Nûjen and Måns Möller and their sold out, award-winning show 'Sveriges Historia - den nakna sanningen'. I mixed FOH on an Allen & Heath iLive-T80 with the installed L'Acoustics ARC system. The show will resume in January 2016 when it goes on tour around Sweden.
