Montage MultiMedia has halted all service operations effective immediately. After some 30+ years of providing music entertainment, presentation audio-video and broadcast television production services, I am liquidating all former business assets to raise funding towards materials and equipment for my next endeavor.
Thank you to everyone we have worked with and for in the production industry. The changes we have worked our craft through have been truly amazing! From my first gigs in the NY/NJ club scene and two inch Ampex recording studios of the 80's; to the fall of rock & roll and the rise of cable TV networks, personal computers and hybrid tech in the 90's; to the globalized internet, digital revolution and socio-political unrest of the new millennium; to self tuning speaker systems and auto-tuned vocalist of the present, and all the people, places and events along the way, the journey could not have been imagined. May you live in interesting times. We certainly have!
For me, the items that populate this website are more than just things. The experience of photographing these tools of my trade and seeing them displayed in this way is surreal and a bit cathartic. I remember the hopes they were purchased on and the projects they worked. From the big dream rock & roll days of Rising Star, to the launch of fledgling networks, or the satellite truck city and airport tours of pro sports venue broadcasts or pharmaceutical and banking industry webcasts, and to my more recent focus on audio-visual events production, these were some of the tools that helped me get the job done. My hope is that they will find their way to someone else who's job of following their dreams and getting it done will be made easier or better because of their use. Maybe some of these tools will find their way back to a session at the old Power Station Studio's or even at the Stanley Cup!
