Hello Everyone! My name is Blag Ivanov and will be your sound engineer and webmaster today. Having recently moved to the UK. I am currently in the process of getting my company Ivanov Audio set up so that I can start working with the talent that England has to offer. This site is the first step to building the foundation of my business. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I graduated California State University Chico in December of 2011 with a Bachelors of Arts in Music: Recording Arts and a Minor in Communications Design: Broadcasting. I have wanted to be a sound engineer ever since the age of 15 and have spent my time since then working with audio equipment, performing in bands, and studying music. Through school and internships I have also had experience working in radio, software design, and even coffee making. Besides my love of music and engineering I am also an avid fan of working on and repairing computers. I also cannot resist getting my hands dirty by repairing and restoring classic cars, specifically old Volkswagens.
My last three years have seen me being heavily involved in starting up an independent recording studio in Chico, California. In that time I learned a great deal about what it takes to start up a business and to develop a business model that works for today’s musicians and artists. In that time Energy Plant Inc. has begun to serve its community by offering recording and mixing services, live sound, and internships to the Butte College.
If things are going so well, why move? The answer is simple, starting up and investing in a succeeding startup company in the United States does not guarantee that person a work visa. To that end I chose to leave and move back to the European Union where I am allowed the freedom to pursue a job without having to worry about such limitations.
I am an entrepreneur at heart and the world is my oyster. Now it is time to help spread the same magic that helped build Energy Plant to the UK and to help foster a greater musical community across the world!
