Los Angeles (February 28, 2007)–The Art Institute of California-Los Angeles is now offering a new Bachelor of Science degree program in Audio Production in its Spring Quarter 2007, which begins on April 2, 2007.
Students enrolled in the inaugural program will receive an education preparing them for careers in the field of audio engineering and post-production for the music, film, television, radio, interactive media, gaming and telecommunications industries. In addition, an on-campus ADR/Foley studio will provide hands-on production experience.
“The current communications and entertainment industry, to which audio is central, is in a constant state of growth and change,” explained Ryan Gahagan, director of the audio production program. “Sound is paired with almost every sight we see and someone’s got to be there to capture and deliver it in new and creative ways. Students will learn the fundamental principles of recording and editing sound so that they can adapt to and influence the ever-changing music and audio industry.”
The guidance of an advisory committee comprised of audio professionals such as Grammy-nominated record producer Rob Graves and Emmy Award-winning sound editor Mark Steele combined with a technology-focused curriculum will prepare graduates for the contemporary marketplace. The curriculum builds a strong foundation in the basic physics of sound and acoustics, enabling them to stay abreast of industry tools that constantly evolve.
Professionals and students interested in the Audio Production program at The Art Institute of California–Los Angeles can attend an Open House event on March 17, 2007 at 10 AM, contact the Admissions Office at 310-752-4700, email email@example.com or visit www.ainewprogram.com/losangeles.
