One of our goals at SAE Institute is to fuel the passion for music, regardless of age or genre. Consequently, we’ve done quite a bit of youth-oriented events before, and it’s always great when we can show youth groups why an understanding of the engineering process is so essential to a musical education.
Recently, our neighbors, the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, had the opportunity to record at SAE Atlanta, and got a fascinating look at the world of studio recording in the process. Check out some of the pics below the break. Thanks to the SAE Atlanta student volunteers, and of course, our enthusiastic visitors from the ASYO! We’ll see you guys again soon!
At SAE Institute, we’re suckers for a good music doc (after all, we’re in the process of making one), so we’re understandably pleased to announce that SAE NY, in coordination with the GRAMMY folks, will be presenting a special screening of Re-Generation, a Hyundai-presented doc that follows five DJ’s in a quest to create music with artists outside of their genres (we know a little something about that too).
