Event Information

A detailed look at microphone types, pickup patterns, placement and use, both for live and studio applications. Students participate in extensive listening and recording exercises with live music. All experience levels are welcome; we’ll cover some basics of theory and history but mostly be engaged in interactive mic use and comparison.
