About Me

Nick Cartwright is a Chicago-based sound engineer. He started as the location audio recordist and post-production mixer for successful music news YouTube channel, CrescendoTv, in 2012. At the same time he began stage managing street festivals, running sound at rock clubs, and taking the role as production manager at other venues.

Currently he is the resident sound engineer for The Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville and technical director for non-profit Bodhi Spiritual Center. He launched and maintained a quality two-camera live stream of the spiritual center’s Sunday services between 2016 and 2019. Since the Bodhi Spiritual Center ceases to hold Sunday services and is moving to a short film and podcast format in the coming year.

Nick continues to venture in new creative projects that demand clean and clear audio. He has a passion sound engineering in all subgatories of the practice — he’s currently desiring location audio work to reconnect with the work that brought him into the industry and to contrast the seven years spent as live sound engineer all over the city of Chicago.

I have been in the industry since 2012.

This video was taken from https://vimeo.com/burayan and was directed by Steven Briand – briand.steven@gmail.com, at partizan during a two months intership. I thoroughly enjoyed the picture and the original sound track, but I wanted to use sound design as the driving force of conveying a message to the audience. So I downloaded the video, stripped all audio from the picture, and began crafting a story. My intention was to draw an analogy between being trapped in one’s own person struggle and being physically enclosed in box. As the box is formed into a 3-dimensional cube, radio waves and city street noise is presented to place blame on society for the character’s internal struggles. The box continues to take the listener through sibling strife, primal anger, and a resilience to the manic voices and frustrated motions.
