Friday, November 5, 4:00 pm — 7:00 pm (Room 206)

Student / Career: Recording Competition Surround

The Student Recording Competition is a highlight at each convention. A distinguished panel of judges participates in critiquing finalists of each category in an interactive presentation and discussion. This event presents stereo and surround recordings in these categories:

• Surround Sound for Picture 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
• Surround Classical 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
• Surround Non-Classical 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

The top three finalists in each category, as identified by our judges, present a short summary of their production intentions and the key recording and mix techniques used to realize their goals. They then play their projects for all who attend. Meritorious awards are determined here and will be presented at the closing Student Delegate Assembly Meeting (SDA-2) on Sunday afternoon.

The competition is a great chance to hear the work of your fellow students at other educational institutions. Everyone learns from the judges’ comments even if your project isn’t one of the finalists, and it's a great chance to meet other students and faculty.

Many of the sessions not mentioned here will be of interest to students, depending on their specialization and progress. Especially all Tutorials, Master Classes, the Live Sound Seminars, and many of the Workshops have much to offer.
