The Nest is run by a team of volunteers. They are aspiring musos, artists, sound, video and lighting enthusiasts.

Erin (lighting & sound)

“My role as The Nest Lighting Tech has involved designing and operating stage lighting for a variety of different bands. Equipment ranges from Par Cans with a variety of coloured gels to XL and XS model Intelligent Lights, LED bars and the LED Starbrite Curtain by PR Lighting. The lighting design consists of constructing many different settings on the Intelligents, including colour, shape, size, intensity, focus, movement and placement to use in conjunction with each other and with the other lights to provide a unique look and atmosphere for each band. The lighting design coincides with the thematic and energetic elements in each song combined with the performance of each musician. Each show aims to bring something new and different than the last which includes new and extended lighting techniques and equipment.”
Erin is studying to be a sound engineer, and has recently assisted in a recording session with local band, Fag Panic.
