The ALC Audio Production class has released their first album. All songs were created by manipulating MIDI files of well-known and lesser-known classical pieces, changing the instruments, and adding sick dance beats. And hey, free download!

 

Engineering Design Gallery Walk

Students in the ALC's Introduction to Engineering Design class recently took part in a brainstorming exercise where they redesigned an ordinary coffee cup. Students then participated in a “gallery walk” where they gave feedback on each other’s designs. They wrote “I Like…” and “I Wonder…” in response to each idea. This protocol will be used throughout the course to help students give feedback as part of project based learning.

ALC Audio Production class went on a field trip to BYU last week.  We also toured the audio and music facilities at BYU, with help from our guides Professor Steve Ricks and Professor Ron Saltmarsh.

We sat in on a Q&A with Kaskade, world famous DJ and electronic music producer. Later that night, Kaskade performed at the Provo Rooftop Concerts. It was packed. And amazing.
