The Central Indiana Section of the Audio Engineering Society hosted its Fourth Annual Central Indiana Audio Student Workshop, Saturday, September 12, 2015 on the campus of Ball State University, Muncie, IN in the Music Media Production studios.
At the workshop, Ohio University Lecturer Kyle P. Snyder presented the following sessions:
The Many Faces of Location Recording and The Intersection of Core Techniques
Location recording means many different things depending upon your particular craft, yet at the heart core competencies exist which are shared. Snyder discussed how techniques used, for example, in gathering ambience or recording on a film set can be applied to other location scenarios like recording an orchestra, and how these shared skills can help to broaden your engineering tool chest.
Keys to Student Success Both in The Classroom and on The Job
Beneficial for educators and students at all skill levels, this panel was focused upon the success of students in audio engineering programs. Chaired by Kyle P. Snyder (Ohio University) and featuring Doug Bielmeier (IUPUI), Ian Corbett (Kansas City Kansas Community College), and Robert Willey (Ball State University), the panel examined how educators throughout the region can best-prepare students to enter the job market and also included information on what students in attendance should know as the begin their careers.
AES Regions & Sections
This was an open meeting for all AES members and interested students in attendance with the intended purpose of helping local sections promote attendance and assisting in their operations. General information about the Audio Engineering Society was shared including details on ways students can get involved with the Student Delegate Assembly.
