Preserving unique performances: Marc Bright-Chochlekov, GigSpace recording engineer“If you have attended a GigSpace concert in the past year you have probably seen him. Marc Bright-Chochlekov can often be observed sitting quietly, very quietly, behind the window in the sound booth at the back, listening intently and making the best possible recording of each unique jazz performance. Since January 2013, he has volunteered as GigSpace’s recording engineer, creating archival recordings of the special performances, that won’t and can’t ever be repeated.”  Nov 19/13 Read full article:
