Calum Martin is a sound technician/designer based in the Capital of the Highlands, Inverness. Born partially sighted along with suffering a stroke in his younger years, this gave Calum a keen interest in the arts. Drumming from the age of 4, (post stroke), this helped aid his recovery, he has always been surrounded by music ever since.
Throughout school Calum assisted designing the lighting for many school productions. This progressed rapidly and soon he was investing in to his own equipment for future school shows. Calum self taught sound design for gigs at the award winning venue Mad Hatters, and was soon mixing Thursday – Sunday whilst still at school working with a wide range of different bands. Calum quickly became someone to call for lighting and sound hire in Inverness.
