Oliver Giving – Owner
The journey that brought me to where I am today with my audio visual skills and passion began when I was ten years old in a model railroad store in London, England. The little worlds of trains, model landscapes, lighting and electricity blew my little mind. It was here that I bought my first steam engine and over the next few years I built my own model railway world on a plywood table in my parents’ basement. Underneath the table there were electrical wires going in every which direction. I loved connecting all of the pieces together and making everything work. As I put an AV system together for an event, I am accessing this same love for connecting pieces and making them work together.
In my late teens, I got into film making through courses in high school and at the Gulf Islands Film and Television School. Through film making, I got my first tastes of organizing large projects and working with professional technology while shaping video, audio and lighting.
My journey was amped up a notch when I discovered experimental electronic music at age nineteen. With a degree of enthusiasm I had not previously known, I purchased two Technics 1200 turntables plus a DJ mixer and began a love affair with DJing which continues to this day.
In my mid 20s, I worked for four years at a restaurant/music venue in East Vancouver. It was during the course of this job where I had my first experiences mixing bands in front of live audiences. I played the role of sound and lighting technician for hundreds of performances here. Included in these performances was a series of twenty-two concerts/dances which some friends of mine and I organized to raise funds for charities in the Downtown Eastside. We raised thousands of dollars at this series.
In 2008, I graduated from Langara College’s Electronic Music Producers Program. During this year long, full-time program I brought my audio skills up to a professional level. The songs which I produced during and after the program along with DJing and live band teching has netted me over ten thousand hours of experience working with sound.
