Our Electronic Music Production student, Rowan Lincoln-Gordon landed a role at Minirig, the awsome portable speaker specialist and has been getting hands on in a few areas of the business.
For those that aren't aware, Minirig is a Bristol-based portable speaker company that has been taking the music-making and DJ scene by storm due to the size-defying power to size ratio and outstanding battery life of the speakers. Based around a simple design, individual speakers can be chained together with an optional subwoofer for a full 2.1 soundsystem, but a single, individual speaker is still of excellent quality and loud enough to make your trousers flap.
Minirig have just launched their latest speaker, the Bluetooth Minirig 2 which packs in a staggering 80hrs of battery life when charged.
We caught up with Rowan to find out a bit more about his role at Minirig in Bristol and he explained how things have progressed since he started working there.
"I have been working with Minirig for about a year, and started off just doing the non-technical jobs. Now I do most of the soldering and assembly of minirig speakers and subwoofers which is really cool. Plus, I've also represented them at music technology conferences and I'm a Minirig DJ, so I get to play at festivals doing after-hours official Minirig takeovers and parties around Bristol."
