Relation to other modules
Related to Music technology.
This six-week module consists of a work placement. For this module, students will work on Thursdays and Fridays as assistant sound technicians for the various recording projects at ArtEZ. This will involve the more practical aspects such as positioning microphones, the studio’s "routing" and dealing with a mixing panel and other studio equipment. As based on their progress, individual students may also be allowed to mix and master small projects themselves. Participation in this module depends on the results of the Music Technology module.
