Antonia Gauci - scenestr of the day

Published in SOD  
What do you do? I'm an engineer, mixer, producer, songwriter, musician, plus a bunch of other things too.

Why do you do it? Super corny, but I love making music and love helping people make music.

What do you love about the city you live in? Sydney has 1,001 great places to eat. I'm always discovering someplace new. We're also spoiled for choice with places to swim in summer.

Where did you go for your last holiday? London.

What's your favourite item of clothing? My leather jacket. I love to joke that Will.I.Am got it for me. I bought it with my first pay check from full-time engineering, and working with him was the first job I did when I started at 301.

What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid? It's a four-way tie between 'Pingu', 'Sabrina The Teenage Witch', 'Arthur', and 'Looney Tunes'.

If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go? I'd go back to the '60s-'70s so I could grab a couple of 1176s and a few Neumann microphones for my studio.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us? Black pepper tofu by Ottolenghi, or some kind of pasta dish.

What's the best lesson you've ever learned? Patience, and that everything happens when it is truly meant to.

Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows... Very dorky, but I spend a lot of time scrolling through Facebook Marketplace looking at second-hand furniture.

Are you happy with your work/ life balance? As a freelancer it always feels like a work in progress to get the balance right, but I'm getting better at it everyday.

How do you define success? A mixed feeling of comfort, satisfaction, and hopefully no regrets.

What's your spirit animal? I was going to say the wedge-tailed eagle as it's my favourite bird. The online quiz I did said an owl. Pretty close!

Antonia Gauci is a finalist in the Studio Production Award at the Australian Women In Music Awards which take place in Brisbane at Hotel X (conference) 17 May with the award ceremony at The Tivoli 18 May.
