SOUTHEAST ASIA: John Latartara received his doctoral degree in Theoretical Studies from the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and is currently an associate professor of music at the University of Mississippi. With interests and aptitudes neatly divided among the three complementary activities of composition, research, and teaching, Latartara makes extensive personal and professional use of his Metric Halo ULN-2 FireWire interface. The ULN-2, which combines peerless mic preamps, converters, and recording software integration, forms the heart of his home studio, where he creates electronic and experimental music (releases on Sachimay, Centaur, and Visceralmedia Records). But the ULN-2 also travels with Latartara to points far and remote in support of his research. Most recently, Latartara has been traveling throughout Southeast Asia to document the rare, and slowly vanishing, music of the Tai Dam people.

BANGKOK, THAILAND: The Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand is home to the country’s Ministry of Defense, in addition to the upper echelon from each of the military’s three branches. Although office space occupies most of the building, a number of boardrooms, conference and war rooms require first-rate sound reinforcement. Recently, the Ministry called on Thai AV Systems contractor Fuzion Far East, well-respected not only for flawless designs but also for tremendous after-sale service, to improve the sound quality in the building’s function room. Fuzion Far East director Siri Wongkamolchun relied on a Symetrix Jupiter 8 “zero learning curve” signal processor to deliver stellar quality and functionality with minimal setup time and at a very competitive price.
