Glen Plunkett

Junior Acoustic Consultant

Glen graduated in 2018 with a first class honours degree (BAhons) in Music Production from Pulse College – a course held in the prestigious Windmill Lane Studios Dublin. Having immersed himself in the studio environment for three years, Glen has played the role of recording engineer, mixer & producer, having worked with the likes of Damien Dempsey. Glen had previously been working as a stage hand, setting up and decommissioning large-scale concert and sporting productions in arenas and stadiums. During that time, Glen made a habit of asking the touring FOH engineer if he could watch how the gig was mixed from behind the desk, and assist where possible. This proved to be invaluable to his experience as a young sound engineer. Glen now works an acoustic consultant and is a principle installer of the DSP system for Smart Studio.
