Industry & Career Services – Sound
We just found out that our ICS – Sound Department has invited the John Lennon Tour Bus to campus! The bus will be here on February 24th from 12 to 4 pm. Two of our graduates who work and travel with the bus will be aboard offering tours. We encourage our sound students to check out this decked-out masterpiece. Remember that as a graduate you too may have the chance to make this your next gig after graduation, so remember to be on your best behavior, ask questions and represent our school well.
According to their website…”The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a non-profit 501(c)(3) state-of-the-art mobile audio and HD video recording and production facility. In its fourteenth year, with the very newest technology and gear, the Bus continues to be dedicated to providing young people with tours of the studios and participation in free songwriting and multimedia production workshops. With the assistance of three on-board engineers, students learn how to write, perform, record, and produce original songs, produce and shoot music videos and documentaries and complete a broadcast quality music video – all in one day!”
Enjoy the rest of your week and stay dry and warm!

Looks like students are coming up with some great new club ideas. There is already buzz on campus about two new innovative campus clubs….

Contact Sound Arts student Donald Scully.
