LOS ANGELES — Bruce Glimpse, whose long career in the live event production industry since the mid-1970s ranged from stints as tour truck driver, production manager and monitor engineer, died June 12, 2014. He was 57.
In recent years, Glimpse’s audio gigs included work on Wheel of Fortune’s location-themed shows, including the “Boston’s Got Game” episodes, the shows taped at the Palazzo casino in Las Vegas in 2010, the “State Fair 4” and “Great Northwest” shows, and the shows taped at Madison Square Garden, among others.
In many of these, Glimpse, working monitors, teamed with PRG’s Bill Daly at FOH and system tech Alan Henig. While seemingly straightforward, the need for high quality speech intelligibility behind the scenes was critical to the production’s success. It was Glimpse’s responsibility to ensure that the crew member who lit up the letters, for example, could clearly distinguish the spoken letters “s” and “f.”
Glimpse is survived by his wife, Letizia, and a daughter. A memorial service is planned for July 19 at Cathedral Chapel of St. Vibiana Parish, 923 South La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90036, starting at 10 a.m.
