This Fall, McNally Smith College of Music (MSCM) is partnering with Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) to present audio+music+media (AM2) — a creative collaboration that gives students from both institutions professional networking and portfolio development opportunities through a series of events hosted at both campuses. For MSCM students, AM2 is a chance to build a compelling body of audio-for-media work by providing field recording, post-production, and original music composition services to MCAD film and animation students.
“It’s a great opportunity for students to work together in the way producers, directors, composers and audio professionals do in the entertainment industry at large—it’s a model of the bigger ecosystem we all work in,” says John Krogh, Chair of MSCM’s Music Production and Contemporary Writing Division. “Every young creative professional needs a portfolio that showcases depth and variety,” Krogh adds. “This is a chance for our students to strengthen their demo reels while they’re still in school.”
The first session will be held at McNally Smith on Saturday, September 22nd from 2:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m. and it is open to all MSCM students. The session will include an “audio in media” workshop featuring Tom Lindquist, one of the Twin Cities’ top audio post mixers and sound designers. Students can also tour the school’s post production audio facilities, located in the McKern Studio Complex.
