Govind makes sure your site is getting built as planned. Being site engineer he spends most of his time on the road hopping projects. He likes interacting with people and speaks 5 languages. The action and buzz of sites keep him going like a performance in showbiz. Action when it's time to deliver, and fun and chill when theres not much going on. Govind's onsite mantra is to 'make friends with everyone and make people happy'. 


Following an extensive career in France as a sound engineer and studio owner Didier decided to make a change and move to Auroville, India. Followed by some time planting trees and volunteering at the Auroville community kitchen, the fun of the mixi grinder wore off and he decided to return to the mixing console. Didier founded Sound Wizard as a crossover from being a user of an acoustic space to creating the sound environment. Didier is a teacher at heart and really enjoys getting the best sound out of every situation. If people want his help, he loves to share his treasure trove of knowledge, and if they don't, that's fine too, there's always the beach.
