For a recent “Session & Mixdown” class, we invited the a cappella group, Musicopian, to perform a song for us to record. Student Ryan Lindley helped to organize the recording and chose the song “Hymn of Acxiom” by Vienna Teng.
The project was a great way for students to practice setting up microphones for groups of musicians and understand the intricacies of microphone placement and spacing. It also required us to run cables between the studio and choir room, which presents new challenges with both setup and communication. We were all very pleased with the final results!
