Terry King

Sound

After working with a run of indie bands at Auckland's Progressive Music Studio, Terry King turned to television. As an engineer and producer in the 80s, King lent his talents to many fledgling Kiwi musicians, winning a reputation for both his technical and people skills. By the 90s he was devoting his energies to screen work, recording sound on many documentaries and non-fiction shows, plus the occasional drama. His long screen CV included high profile reality show The Block, and award-winning documentaries on photographer Robin Morrison and dancer Douglas Wright. Terry King died of cancer on 11 July 2017.

Optimistic and enthusiastic, a bit of an adrenalin junkie. Most of all he loved people — especially those that were good at something. He celebrated talent. He wasn't threatened by it, in fact he took pride in making it possible for others to express the qualities they had. Progressive Music Studio engineer Steve Garden, on Terry King
