Tobias Seitz - Concert Sound
…let me introduce myself.
My name is Tobias Seitz and I’m a sound engineer… and yes I have heard many alterations of my name: TwoBeers, To Bias or Not To Bias, Tobi Wan Kenobi and so on. Of course you can come up with your own idea.
Oh by the way - I live in Berlin with my family and I love everything about sound:
Mixing concerts, recording songs, pushing faders and listening to music through really big PA systems, traveling the world and hanging out with nice people. And I’m doing this for thirty years now professionally.
I have done small clubs as well as huge festivals. Most of the times mixing from FoH. But sometimes I also live in Monitorworld. All kinds of styles. From quiet to loud…and sometimes it goes to ELEVEN.*

I was born 1971 in Villingen, Black Forest.
Long before I ever spent a thought on mixing, I found my passion for music. As a child I loved listening to my radio alarm clock (a cool gadget in the seventies) That led to the first synth (a Yamaha DX21 - still in possession) music lessons (organ/piano) and to first school bands.
After graduating from school I teamed up with local
PA-Hero Erbse Ebers and soon sat behind the mixing board e.g., at the VS-swingt Jazzfestival. (Under „surveillance“ from producer H.G. Brunner-Schwer of MPS-Records fame) Mixing for artists such as Max Roach, Les McCann, Ray Brown, Chuck Rainey, Kris Kristofferson and many others…
In the early 1990ies I mixed a concert of British R´n´B legend Long John Baldry who asked me to join the tour as his sound engineer. Thanks to this incident I had the opportunity to tour with seasoned bands and artists throughout Europe at an early age. Gathering a wealth of experience.
1993 saw me moving to Freiburg to study sociology. Besides spending hours in lecture halls I went on mixing gigs in concert halls.
I toured with the likes of Colin Hay of Men At Work, Ian McLagan of the Small Faces/Faces , Iain Matthews/Plainsong, Snowy White and many others.
In 1999 I moved again. This time to Berlin. I joined Freie Universität Berlin but still followed my passion for live sound. After leaving university in 2001 I focussed completely on mixing. When not touring you could also find me working as resident engineer at famed Quasimodo Club and the SO36 for many years. Also doing one offs, TV shows and the occasional corporate gig. With a good friend I opened my first recording studio (South Star Recorder), recorded some pretty good music and played in several bands (e.g. Mobylettes etc.)
I have toured from Japan to Ecuador; from Russia to Chile, the Americas, most of Europe and a lot in between.
In the last couple of years I have also been teaching mixing and recording for different institutions.
* My dream: to mix for Spinal Tap one day. If you know them - let them know!
