Munir - joined Audio T in 2002
First job: straight out of college in 1988, Munir started working for Microvitec Plc. This involved using video pattern generators and light meters to video calibrate very expensive monitors for the Reuters news agency. A precursor to todays ISF video standards used for projectors, plasmas etc, in fact, setting the greyscales and colours "by eye only" was a challenge I enjoyed getting involved in.
Top Bands / Artists: (at the moment) John Coltrane, Bonobo, M83 and Matthew Halsall & the Gondawana orchestra.
Top Films: Rashoman by Akira Kurosawa(still at the top), The Revenant and Lord Of the Rings trilogy.
Favourite demonstration music (and why):
I have more than one really but at the moment Beck’s "The Information” is a stand out.
Tracks on my current playlist: Pakard by Plastikman from the Artifakts album. This track just simmers gently in the background, love it.
Dancing in Outerspace by Atmospere (masters at work mix)
Black Sands by Bonobo
The Message by Cymande
Dreamsters by Tipper
Favourite demonstration movies (and why):
The storm scene from Prometheus as the crew try to get back to the ship - Great movie too.
The motorbike scene in Skyfall culminating in "Bond atop the train" just as the titles start & The Dolby Atmos demo Blu-ray. Both scenes show you exactly what a correctly set up home cinema should sound like.
