In Melbourne as part of Music Cities Convention, Marcel Kok sat down with Industry Professionals from Victoria to discuss sound level measurements at live music events, indoors and outdoors.

Marcel has many years of experience in supporting and advising concert organisers in Europe and beyond, achieving maximum quality sound without violating environmental and health and safety regulations.

With the help of crowd funding, hear from Tania Bosak from Open Studio on how Good Music Neighbours Grant has helped her venue and the challenges they faced.

John Perring from Bar Open & The Tote talks on how the Good Music Neighbours funding has helped his venues and the issues they have faced from near by neighbours. 


Hear Elizabeth Beach (National Acoustic Laboratories, The HEARing CRC) & Dr. Jos Mulder (Murdoch University) talk about how sound inside live music venues play an important aspect of a venue’s noise management plans and how sound works for punters, bands, sound engineers and staff.


Good Music Neighbours is a Creative Victoria matched funding opportunity for live music venues to access support to manage their sound attenuation needs. Previous GMN recipients Helen Marcou and Quincy McLean (Bakehouse Studios) & Justin Stanford (The Night Cat, Fitzroy) talk about the benefits his venue have received through participating in the program.
