Student Creates New Electronic Music

DSU Students have been hard at work this semester in our Recording Sessions class. One student in particular, Kristen Cooper, has been keeping a blog showing off her latest work. She has been using a portable field recorder to capture and edit sound effects for a video game project being produced in the Gaming department. Additionally, she has been practicing her skills using the software program, Reason, and recently finished a song titled, "Nightmare Moon Remix Rhapsody": Nightmare Moon Remix Rhapsody by Cooper Production
As mentioned above, she has also been capturing many sound effects and editing them in Pro Tools for the video game. She was requested to gather effects related to burning, trash cans, and howling winds. Here's the latest from what she's been working on:

I'm excited to see where this and the other Recording Sessions projects will lead this semester!

DSU Live has a HUGE start!

As students have been getting back to work in their classes this semester, the campus music organization, DSU Live, has been off to a really strong start.  The opening "GO! Karaoke" event packed the Underground and gave students the opportunity to sing their hearts out on stage.  It was also a great opportunity to show off the updates to the Underground which includes brand new LED stage lighting!  DSU Live also worked hard to promote themselves during the annual Activities Fair.  

Above, you see founding member Matt Lyon posing with organization advisor, Nathan Edwards.  Also helping out were student members Tyler Steele, Bruce Schulz, Paul Schipper, and faculty advisor, Sandy Champion.  Check out all of the upcoming events at the brand new DSU Live website:!
