Tim FitzPatrick – Audio Producer and ToneTalk Audio Director:
ToneTalk Audio is the brainchild of Tim FitzPatrick. He was born, raised and educated in Taunton, Somerset and conceived of this project when he realised how valuable the recording of the spoken word can be in fostering creativity and business enterprise in a local community. He was trained in sound engineering at Bridgwater College and at the well-known Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, and has a wide range recording and production experience going back 20 years.
“ I have a love for the Somerset countryside and it’s where I feel most at home. My passion for sound commenced in primary school when the percussion trolley was wheeled out. I was compelled to pick up the instruments and play. From then I learnt the drums and played in various local groups and bands. Before I finished school I started getting involved in recording and editing music and doing live sound for school shows.
When I went to college I discovered my first proper recording studio. I was mesmerised and drawn in deeper. I decided to study Music Technology at Bridgwater College and then went to LIPA (The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) where I spent three of the best years of my life.
I came away with a BA Hons in Sound Technology and a lot of experience, working freelance as a live sound engineer at local clubs and venues including the Cavern Club, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and for Cream Dance Music UK.
In my subsequent career as a sound engineer I have worked for Britannia Row Productions in London, as Production Arts and Performing Arts Technician at Bridgwater College, and have done many audio and video projects for several holistic health and self development organisations.
I have always been a lover of the landscape and fascinated with creativity and the arts. I practise meditation and Chi Gung (Tai Chi) and am interested in what anyone has to say about how we can live more positively and enjoy life.
What people have to say about their own lives, their art, their business, their work and their experience is the heart of what I want to do with ToneTalk Audio. I want to help make people’s creativity, interest and passion sing!”
