Sound Engineering for TY students

sound engineering 448x336

Following a hugely successful pilot programme, Kildare County Council Arts Service developed "Sound engineering for transition year students" in the Platform 4 Recording Studio in Leixlip Library. The course is aimed at transition year students who wish to undertake work experience in the recording industry.

Schools taking part in 2010 are Confey College, CBS Naas, Clongowes College and Salesians College.

The 3 day course will focus primarily on the art of recording. Participants will learn how to adjust, augment and adapt recorded sound using the most up to date equipment. Participants will also become familiar with all the equipment in a recording studio and how to use it appropriately.

Ability to play a musical instrument is desirable but not essential. The focus of the course is how you record the sound and very much the process of recording. A willingness to develop your technical skills in a recording studio and a love of music and the science behind it is essential.

The training will be led by house engineer Paul Dowling. Paul is a graduate of Pulse Recording College. He is a freelance recording/mixing engineer and is a certified Digi Design operator in both music and post production techniques. Key projects include Live Engineer Body&Soul, Electric Picnic ’08;  Sound designer for Film Circle production company (Dublin), and Sound design/composition for Our Town Multimedia (Los Angeles).
