Faulkner Center Offers Sound Production Internship Class
This spring, the Jim and Joyce Faulkner Performing Arts Center at the University of Arkansas will again offer its interactive internship class for academic credit, Fulbright College Elective Internship (ARSC 310V:004). The topic of this internship-style course is Intro to Mixing Live Audio.
The Faulkner Center has developed this elective internship class, open to students completing an internship for their career goals and/or area of study, to give students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with a seasoned professional in the field of audio production.
Adam Putman, technical director of the Faulkner Center, will teach the internship which is a one-hour elective that meets in person on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 10:10 a.m. The course is limited to 10 students, who must be enrolled by Friday, Jan. 17. Students should contact their academic advisor to register.
By the end of the internship class, students will be able to:
- Mix audio for bands, soloists and events
- Troubleshoot issues related to audio signal path
- Mix monitors for an artist without feedback
- Identify and choose the correct microphone for the situation
- Setup and tear down a PA system
- Comfortably mix on most digital consoles after a short acclimation
- Create multi-track recordings of live audio productions
