ARP mixtape 2012

In DIGA 361: Audio Recording and Production, students learn to work in Stetson’s recording studio and use multitrack DAWs to complete a range of projects.  For their final project, students spend 5 weeks pursuing projects of their choice to demonstrate their skills.  This may range from a studio recording with a local band to a spoken-word piece with accompanying music to a MIDI rendition of an orchestral work.

This year, we have revived an old practice of gathering all the projects together in a compilation that we share.  This used to be done with CD-R copies for the students, but with today’s ease of digital distribution we thought, “why not make an MP3 mixtape and share it with the world.”  If you want to hear the work that these 17 students did, simply click the link below to begin downloading.  Once completed, unzip the archive and import the MP3s into your iTunes or other MP3 library.  Enjoy!

Conducing Procepts

Brent Walker (DIGA Sound 2012) decided to take the RPM challenge for his senior research project.  The objective is to record 10 songs or 35 minutes of material during February, the shortest month of the year.  The results are his new album, Conducing Procepts, which you can download here. Brent also produced a short 10 minute documentary about his experience that you can view below:


FMI 2012 Results

We recently completed our annual digital arts festival, FMI: Festival of the Moving Image. The event is co-hosted by the student media group GHM: Green Hat Media and I would like to thank students Amanda Rienhart, Charlie Carr, Philip Meisner, Michael Johnpoll Mark Kisch, and Hunter Lee for all of their help. For the second year in a row the event was held at the Athens Theater in downtown DeLand, a great venue to host an impressive selection of works created by Stetson students.
