Here, you’ll grow in your understanding of audio (sound capture, sound engineering, sound design, and sound mixing) in the live production process. Learn how to plan, coordinate, direct, and produce audio content or various live contexts, including radio, television, concerts, and online live streams.
Gain techniques in enhancing audience experience during live broadcast or live streamed events. And discover how to create a sound environment that will make the viewing audience feel as though they are there in person.
With the Audio – Live Production concentration, you’ll learn how to:
- Design the technical set-up to capture audio for live indoor and outdoor events
- Assess the sound environment
- Adjust to capture quality sound for live and streamed distribution
Work with professors who are industry specialists and who are grounded in their Christian faith. Hands-on opportunities take place with the help of the School of Communication and Arts (SCA) Media Lab where you’ll have access to professional audio equipment. The SCA also houses the campus radio station facilities, 90.9 the Light, and a new audio lab where commercials, music, and package pre-production take place.
Build on your experience as you participate in live events streamed from the School of Music’s state of the art concert hall, the Vines auditorium, the Falkirk Center, and the Todd Starks studio. Coverage of athletic events in the Williams Stadium, the basketball and volleyball Liberty Arena, and the LaHaye Hockey Arena offer hands-on experience in live sound broadcast and streaming environments. Volunteers on the audio team for Campus Community and student workers on the Convocation crew also get firsthand exposure to front-of-house and mixing of live ministry and worship sound.
