Description:

Experienced musicians as well as novices who are interested in exploring sound creation for the very first time are invited to join together in creating recorded performances for the Department of Music’s project the Sound Fantastic initiative, which will enhance the Light Fantastic project, organized by the Smart Museum, by creating sound installations for various locations around campus.  With the assistance of Sam Pluta, Assistant Professor and Director of the Computer Music Studio, Department of Music grad students Hunter Brown and Theodore Moore will lead a series of introductory workshops to assist students in the creation, recording, and mixing of short audio- or audio-visual performances. Students without formal musical training as well as more experienced musicians are invited to work together to generate these recordings.

This is a two-part workshop and participants should plan to attend both sessions:

Session 1: January 21 7:00-8:00PM

Session 2: January 28 7:00-8:00PM

Even if your house collaborates on several of these installations, you will still only earn 25 total points. To be eligible for Maroon Cup points, all individuals/teams must include their house’s name within their entry.  If participating as a team, all team members must be eligible house members to earn Maroon Cup points.
