my name is sahan. i am a 2009 graduate of the university of wisconsin-milwaukee. i received my bachelor’s degree in communication, with a focus on interpersonal communication and public speaking. i want to be your social media intern.
why do i want to intern at noise? because you are uniquely awesome, and you aren’t afraid to show it. you provide your team with an environment that embraces their creativity rather than stifling it. it is environments like these where creative individuals like myself are able to let our ideas fully blossom into great, great things. read on and you will find that, much like yourselves, i too am uniquely awesome.
during my first year of college, i decided to put out a 7” vinyl record out of a complete love and passion for vinyl. i funded, promoted, marketed and distributed everything 100% independently, driven by the do-it-yourself ideology adopted by so many other independent record labels before me. i personally assembled, hand numbered and mailed out every copy. after all was said and done, i sold through the entire pressing, and it managed to make its way as far as australia, japan and the uk.
from 2007-2009 I was fortunate enough to have worked at atomic records, the world-renowned east side independent record store. always on the cutting edge, we happily provided customers both old and new with the most current new releases, in addition to awesome in-store performances and hard-to find imports. after 24 years in the business, atomic sadly closed its doors in 2009. a short interview with me was posted on the matador records website in 2008.
this is my gear is a blog that i created to combine my love of music gear with my love of writing. in it, i interview touring musicians, discussing their choices in music gear, be it in the studio or on the road. too many music interviews tend to focus solely on an artist’s history, song writing processes or the “new record that’s just about done”. tired of the repetition and always eager to chat about music, i decided to put a new spin on an old favorite.
since 2009 i have been employed by music go round in greenfield, wi. we specialize in buying and selling pre-owned music gear. our branch annually ranks within the top three nationwide store locations, consistently being recognized for our provision of outstanding customer service. in addition to being a part of the buying and sales staff, i also manage our store’s facebook account as well as contribute to the monthly newsletter, which currently has over 1300 subscribers.
in my free time i play in the chicago-based band good night and good morning. we aim to provide our audience with a live performance that is pleasing both aurally and visually.
