A Journey Into Sound: Interview with Tony Andrews (Funktion One)

Here’s a find well worth sharing for anyone out there who’s very much into not only their music, but the way it reaches your ears. You might not have heard of Tony Andrews, or even of his company, Funktion One, but there is no doubt that you would have seen their distinctive purple-bound speakers at gig venues and raves up and down the country. And there’s good reason for it too.

Catch Tony here delivering an extra-special lecture for the Point Blank music academy. While he may often drift from the topic, the insight he comes out with into the importance of hi-definition audio and how to achieve it is some of the best you’ll hear.

If you like what you see and hear, Tony’s nuggets of knowledge can be found all over the internet. My personal favourite?

The problem is that unless you get everything right across the audio chain, you can compromise your sound. It’s like having ten window panes lined up one after another – if one is blurred, you won’t be able to get a clear view. It’s the same with an audio chain. It only takes one fault along the entire chain to ruin the sound.

Wise words indeed.
