Chip Auchincloss is a Monitor Engineer and Backline Tech based in Brooklyn, N.Y., who’s spent the last 20 years living his dream of working in the live sound industry.
I met with Chip at his Brooklyn studio where we dove deep into his upbringing in Philadelphia, his obsession with concerts, and the crazy coincidence of our family connection.
Over the years he has toured with artists ranging from Dirty Projectors, Silversun Pickups, The New Pornographers, Regina Spektor, and many more. He’s also worked as a house engineer at several venues including Sony Hall, World Stage, Webster Hall, and B.B. King’s Blues Club, where he got his start.
