I started work on my RTP file. This is my third year review, so I don’t want it to sneak up on me at the end of the summer.
Covered loudspeakers and started on mixers.
I also have an old friend coming in town this week. Excited to see Lyn for the first time is five or six years.
As you may have noticed, I’ve finally updated the website for the first time in a few years. This is a major overhaul. I shifted to a blog-centric format, which will be much more adaptable in the long run. It also has allowed me to re-examine what I am doing with my site.The last design was really driven towards finding a job. Now I have a tenure-track position, so my emphasis really needs to shift back to highlighting the work I’m already doing.
I’m sure more changes will come, but this is a nice start.
In AR, we finished microphones, and then did some critical listening and production analysis.
I then met with some incoming students about auditions and the program.
I gave the basic principles of psycho-acoustics lecture today. It is really one of my favorite lectures to give in the entire curriculum. I love getting to touch on so many aspects of our experiential realities. I get to be heady and philosophical without feeling like it is out of step with the subject matter. We also covered the microphone lecture, as well. It is always interesting to cover a weeks worth of material in each class session during these concentrated courses.
Then, I made another pizza and went to see Radiohead.
It was a good experiential reality today.
