|ARTS1790||Audio Production for Film
Description: This course examines the four elements of audio for film, dialogue, effects, soundscapes and music, and how they work together to support and enhance the visual elements of film. Students will engage in hands-on construction of a short film soundtrack by live recording and sourcing audio from sound libraries. They will use both audio and video software and technology to manipulate the audio elements to create a cohesive, foundational-level short film soundtrack.
|ARTS1730||Introduction to Applied Recording
Description: Enrolment in this course is limited to Wilfrid Laurier Music students. This course blends foundational audio theory with contemporary recording technology in an applied, project-based setting. Students will engage in hands-on-training in the art and science of capturing sound with popular and cost-effective Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs). Fundamental techniques in engineering, microphone selection, signal processing and mixing will be presented. Focus will be placed on understanding acoustic environments, instrument-specific recording techniques, field recording and the performance aspects of quality recordings. Please be prepared to spend an additional $200 for the rental of professional audio recording gear.
