This week we spoke with Lloyd Puckitt, the sound designer for the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps. Earlier in his career, Lloyd worked as a recording engineer for acts including Depeche Mode, Erasure, Mathew Sweet, Madonna, and earned platinum records with Vitamin C and Fuel.
In the late 90s, as the business side of the music industry went through some significant changes, Lloyd returned to the education and artistic side of music. Lloyd is now a sound designer and an education artist for Innovative Percussion, Evans Drumheads, Planet Waves, and Dynasty Percussion.
Please consider my sound for video classes available over at the Learn Light and Sound School.
