Audiogrouch is an advocate for music listeners, music players, creators and the dancing public at large. At the same time he has always had his advocacy and attention focused on the people, the animals, the Earth, and how destructive mankind has been to living things trying to live, and Earth itself. He sees that we are not just of the Earth, we ARE the Earth, there is no separation, and she is in distress.
 
Audiogrouch  is a critical listener, an audio specialist, a sound designer, audio engineer and consultant. His sound company provides everything needed to put on concerts and large gatherings. His nickname means he will not compromise on sound quality nor public safety. It doesn't necessarily mean he is always a grumpy guy. In fact he is quite willing to compromise on everything else. Just not those two specific things.

He has forty years experience doing sound for special events. He has skills across multiple disciplines. His sound company Metrosound Inc. was hit hard after the 2008 bank crash. He is looking to build a new scene, he is starting a new company called Artist Audio Inc. He wants to work on community projects, art projects, and music projects. He is raising money to build a new soundstage, tracking and  broadcast studio, events space and meeting room for public use in Kingston, New York.

Audiogrouch is Alan Thompson, who has been accused of attempting "revolution by sound system." He has been active since 1980, when he started producing Rock Against Racism concerts at the Central Park Bandshell. That event series lasted for ten years, until some angry billionaire used the park conservancy, their corporate counsel and ultimately the U.S. Supreme Court to permanently remove his group from that public space. They were replaced by the Summerstage Program, a government run placebo cultural event apparently designed to displace autonomous (and vocal!) community access to the Central Park Bandshell area.

From 1980 to 1984 Thompson provided sound for the Rock Against Reagan Tour, which made it to all 48 states. It was a punk and reggae tour, with bands like the Dead Kennedys and Millions of Dead Cops. Since then he has continued to provide sound reinforcement for all sorts of civil rights, human rights, animal rights and planet rights events where people gather. He is also a drummer, since age 7, and 50 years later is currently is engaged in various music projects soon to be announced.
