Our Team

We recognise that our team are our greatest assets. 

Pete Eaglesfield

peteePete graduated from The City University in London with a BSc in Music, heading straight into the role of service engineer in the multitrack department at Hilton Sound Plc.  Having learnt to look after both analogue and digital tape machines, in 1994 he joined Angel Recording Studios as a maintenance engineer, gaining a firm grounding in the operation and maintenance of a large orchestral studio facility.  Returning to the hire sector in 1996, Pete accepted the position of Technical Manager at Dreamhire UK and oversaw the expansion of the operation from a small terraced house to a purpose-built warehouse.  Pete left Dreamhire in 1999 to set up the southern division of Mediaspec UK Ltd.  In 2002, after the closure of Mediaspec South, he and Antony formed Yellow Technology.

Pete is the guardian of Yellow Technology's values, and is responsible for the overall development of the company.  He continues to consult on all types of project.

 

Antony Conner

antonyAntony graduated from Surrey University as a Tonmeister and taught classroom music for a year before joining Dolby Laboratories as a technical engineer. Here, he designed and built custom switching systems, and rebuilt the audio installation for their quality control theatre. He then joined CTS Studios, routinely setting up sessions and attending to the technical progression of the facility. He stayed there until the studios were closed in 2000. Mediaspec South snapped up the opportunity to offer Antony a position as Technical Manager, overseeing all the division’s audio installations.

In 2002, Antony joined Pete in setting up Yellow Technology and took the position of Technical Director.  He takes responsibility for all of the technical development within the company but retains a hands-on role in complex projects. Antony has a wealth of expertise in all areas of audio, media and information technology.  Antony is an experienced engineer, and is responsible for many of the customisation and electronic design facilities that we provide.

Ben Savage

BenBen joined Yellow as a placement student from Surrey University in 2007 and proved himself as a first-class audio technician in a very short space of time, quickly becoming involved in several high-profile studio installations.  We reluctantly allowed him to return to university where his final year saw him conducting extensive research into the use of psychoacoustic methods to improve the speech intelligibility of forensic recordings.

Having gained his Tonmeister degree, Ben was welcomed back as an audio consultant where he threw himself into not only the management of many of our projects, but also started to further develop the company's technical practices and to streamline the production process.  Ben's ability to calmly and efficiently manage the most complex of installations led to his promotion to Production Manager in 2012, where he continues the pursuit of excellence in all areas.

Ben is also a member of the successful folk roots band, The Willows.

Dan Griffiths

DanDan hails from Gloucester and was our third Tonmeister recruit.  Having spent his placement year with us in 2009, Dan then completed his BMus degree in Music and Sound Recording in 2010, shortly before joining us permanently at Yellow Technology as an audio consultant.

Dan is an experienced wireman, having masterminded many of our complex integration projects, and he is selected as project manager for a wide range of audio projects.

In the course of his research, Dan has written on the subject of the perceptual attributes of sound (in particular, "warmth"), and he has also built up a wide-ranging portfolio of his own recordings, which allows him an enhanced understanding of the issues that face many of our clients.

Ali Barker

AliAli joined the company in 2011 as an audio consultant.  Another Tonmeister, having graduated from the University of Surrey with a BMus degree in Music and Sound Recording, Ali is involved in all areas of production, service and support within the company, but is particularly adept with media systems involving more complex data handling requirements.  Ali has also managed a number of our client projects and is a key contact for many clients.

Ali is a keen trumpeter and guitarist and is a member of indie band Tape Runs Out, as well as various other jazz ensembles.

James Collins

James2James began his career at Lansdowne Studios in 1989, subsequently moving to CTS studios as a house engineer.  Here, he honed his skills as a recording and mix engineer, leading to the presentation of the prestigious Golden Reel Award.  James has worked with some of the world's best known recording artists such as Amy Grant, Cliff Richard and The Shadows, Kelly Clarkson, Rick Wakeman and Suede, and has worked on films such as Shall We Dance (starring Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez), The Magic Roundabout (starring Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue), Little Voice (starring Jane Horrocks) and the award-winning The History Boys.

James lends his significant industry experience to Yellow Technology whilst continuing his engineering career.  He is frequently involved in more complex installations, but is also heavily involved in the training and development services that we offer to professionals and educational establishments.
