DIRECTIONS to Tuck and Jeremy's house:

 

VIA METRO NORTH RAILROAD:

From Grand Central Station, take a New Haven line Metro North train that stops in Pelham. From Pelham station, the house is a gorgeous 10 minute walk. See walking directions below.*

 

DRIVING from West Side of Manhattan and points South and West:

Take Henry Hudson Pkwy north to Cross County Pkwy east. Follow signs to Exit 9: Hutchinson River Pkwy south. Go one exit on Hutch south to Exit 12: Lincoln Ave. As you exit on the ramp, bear right to a traffic light, and turn right onto Lincoln Ave (at Getty station). Go 0.6 miles, then turn left at Storer Ave, just past a small fenced construction site. Follow Storer Ave around to the right to house number 217, which will be on the left.

 

DRIVING from East Side of Manhattan:

Take FDR Drive north to Madison Ave Bridge. Get onto Deegan Expy north. Exit onto Cross County Pkwy east. Follow directions above as in West Side.

 

DRIVING from points South and East:

Take Whitestone Bridge to Hutchinson River Pkwy. Take Exit 12: Lincoln Ave. Turn left at stop sign to get to traffic light (Mobil station), and turn right onto Lincoln Ave. Go 0.6 miles, then turn left at Storer Ave, just past a small fenced construction site. Follow Storer Ave around to the right to house number 217, which will be on the left.

 

DRIVING from points North:

Get to Hutchinson River Pkwy southbound. Take Exit 12. Follow directions above as in West Side.

 

 

* WALKING from Pelham Metro North Station (arriving from Manhattan):

Upon leaving the train in Pelham, find the center stairs near a small waiting room.

(If there's a taxi, about $5 will get you to the house, if you're not in the mood for a short walk.)

 By foot, continue out of the station parking area to the first street, Pelhamwood Ave.

Turn left onto Pelhamwood and walk down the hill.

Make the first possible left turn, at the bottom of the hill, onto Highbrook Ave., and immediately go under an underpass.

 Stay on Highbrook. Walk under another underpass, and get to a traffic light: Lincoln Ave.

Turn right onto Lincoln.

 You're now walking east on Lincoln. Take the first left turn onto Storer Avenue.  Follow the road until you find a gravel driveway on the left. That is 217 Storer Ave.  Welcome to the Picnic!

Past Event: "I Am Your Future: Careers in Audio"

March 10, 2016 at 7:00 pm

Location: NYU's Steinhardt 35 West 4th St 3rd Floor

Moderated by: Howard Schwartz and Maggie Luthar

Speaker(s): Avi Laniado – Harbor Films; Dan Millice – Engine Room Audio; Jared Goodstadt – High 5 Games; John Kilgore – John Kilgore Sound & Recording; Howard Schwartz – Consultant and owner of the legendary HSRNY Studios; Jon Kita – Conclave Studios; Mike Battaglia – CEO, Triomi

 

What part of the audio business do you want to break into? How do you do it? Is your entry into the audio workforce imminent? Are you still in an audio-centric program and want to get ahead of your peers? Then attend this meeting and gain insights from those in the business.

What do people look for in prospective interns? What do they expect interns to walk away with when their internship is finished? Does interning give you an advantage over others when trying to get an assistant position?

If you have already completed an internship, then what do people look for in prospective assistants? What is the progression from an assistant? What skills are emerging that are important to have?

The audio business changes regularly. How have things changed over time? How have they
stayed the same? What things are not taught in schooling that can only be learned by actually being involved at a facility?

If you attend this meeting, you will hear these questions and others addressed.

Past Event: Distortion FX — Recording and Mix Strategies with Alex Case

January 12, 2016 at 7:00 pm

Location: Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, NYU - Studio 510. 194 Mercer Street - 5th Fl

Moderated by: Jim Anderson

Speaker(s): Alex U. Case - University of Massachusetts Lowell

 Distortion, deliberately applied to elements of your mix, is a source of energy that lifts tracks up out of a crowded arrangement and adds excitement to the performance.  Accidental distortion, on the other hand, is a certain sign that the production is unprofessional, dragging down its chance for success.  Amps, stomp boxes, tubes, transformers, tape machines, the plug-ins that emulate them, and the plug-ins that create wholly new forms of distortion all offer a rich palette of distortion colors.  Mix engineers must know how to choose among them, and how to tailor them to the music.  Case takes a close look at distortion, detailing the technical goings-on when things break-up, and defining the production potential of the most rebellious of effects.

 

Alex U. Case has dedicated his professional life to the study of aesthetics, perception, signal processing, electro-acoustics and room acoustics for the creation and enjoyment of recorded music. An Associate Professor of Sound Recording Technology, Case leads classes, sessions and research with undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.

 

AES President-Elect and a Fellow of both the Audio Engineering Society and the Acoustical Society of America, Case is an engineer, educator, and author - for Focal Press, and lynda.com - who speaks frequently on audio and acoustics across the United States and worldwide. With degrees in Mechanical Engineering, Music, and Acoustics, Professor Case lives and works at the intersection of audio art and science.
