Following his graduation, Dominic Parry worked as a full-time apprentice at leading audio equipment rental company Britannia Row Productions. Founded by Pink Floyd, Britannia Row has grown to become a global leader providing equipment for the London Olympics, Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons and The Cure‘s tour. Dominic assisted in the 2019 Brit Awards as a stage technician for numerous performing acts including James Bay, Calvin Harris, Hugh Jackman, and P!NK. He has also worked on Andrea Bocelli’s world tour and the MTV European Music Awards. Dominic’s apprenticeship scheme at Britannia Row Productions continued the training he started at Abbey Road Institute. He worked for several months in each of the companies departments (Maintenance, Speakers, Cables, Rigging, RF, Digital, Warehouse Manager Assistant & Prep) whilst taking part in two 15 week training courses; Live Sound fundamentals and Live Sound Intermediate graduating with distinctions in both.
Despite COVID having cleared his calendar of potential work in 2020, Dominic was not disheartened but instead moved to New Zealand, who were COVID free at the time, to find stable audio work. There he freelanced for Oceania Productions on: All Blacks vs Australia Bledisloe Cup (Corporate Lounge), Aotearoa Music Awards (mic & backstage management) and Plane Sailing festival 2022 (stage tech). He also started as a Production Technician for Streamliner Productions where he was then promoted to Head Venue Technician for Sky City.
Dominic is extremely proud of his work in New Zealand, working on projects that hold extreme significance to Māori culture such as operating the audio for The Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care in 2022.
Dominic is currently taking the Ableton Professional Certificate with Berklee Online, hoping to break into playback engineer roles in the future.
