Getting To Know… Guillaume Le Nost

This week, L-Acoustics executive director, creative technologies, Guillaume Le Nost takes the hot seat for our Getting To Know interview…

How did you get into the industry?
Through my drummer. He was playing in another band with an L-Acoustics R&D engineer.

What was your first job?
I started in the sound system development team at L-Acoustics, and my first mission was to work on the design of Arcs Wide, Focus and SB18.

What does your working day look like?
Two key words, innovation and coordination. Looking outside to sense the future directions of our industry, and looking inside to coordinate development projects which will hopefully drive the industry forward.

What is your favourite thing about the pro audio industry?
The passion, commitment and feeling of community within this industry.

And your least favourite thing?
That it is still very hard to fulfil both audio and visual concerns in a given project. As humans, these two senses are equally important, be it for a live show or a conference call.

What is the achievement/project you are most proud of?
The launch of L-ISA technology in 2016, which has started a big shift towards object-based audio in the live industry.

What do you like to do outside of work?
I am focusing on technology and sometimes very abstract concepts at work, so I enjoy very much down to earth activities during my spare time: cooking, music practice, and family activities in the outdoors.
