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.
Il Divo European Tour 2014
Wednesday 15th October 2014
I am currently on tour with Il Divo, a multinational operatic pop group on their 2 month long autumn tour 'A Musical Affair'. Playing mostly arenas, the show has so far been through Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and is heading back to the UK in a few days time before finishing in Lisbon. I am looking after a Capital Sound supplied monitor system comprised of a DiGiCo SD10, 8x Sennheiser G3 IEMs, Martin Audio LE1500 wedges and W8LM flown side-fills.
The end of Festival Season 2014
Friday 5th September 2014
This year has seen me looking after monitors on no less than 7 UK festivals, including BST Hyde Park Great Oak Stage, Rewind (Perth, Henley-on-Thames and Chester), Field Day Main Stage (Victoria Park, London) and SW4 Main Stage (Clapham Common, London). While I love the challenges these gigs present, and have had the opportunity to work with some great bands and artists, I'm also looking forward to doing some gigs indoors for the rest of the year!
Leona Lewis at the WMAs
Monday 30th June 2014
This week I was hired to mix monitors for Leona Lewis at the World Music Awards, where she performed the song 'La La La' with producer Naughty Boy. The show was demanding with a very fast turnover of artists, this act alone requiring 8 ways of IEM. Other acts on the bill of this annual awards show, hosted in Monte Carlo, included Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus and Tinie Tempah.
