Meeting Location:


What a turnout for the first meeting of the school year! The officers started the meeting by introducing themselves, and explaining a little about the UML Audio Engineering Society to new and returning members. Questions were answered, t-shirts were sold, and the crowd was re-assured that our meetings are open to the public and that no commitment from meeting to meeting is required.

Since we wanted to start the new school year off with something engaging, the bulk of the meeting consisted of a critical listening session in UML's Durgin 114. Each person who brought a CD was given the chance to play one track and talk briefly about why that track was chosen. The selections spanned a wide range of genre's and were everything from professional surround-sound mixes to student hobby-projects. The listening list included the following:

1. Pink Floyd — Great Gig In The Sky (surround) (eng by James Guthrie)
2. Porcupine Tree — The Creator Has A Master Tape (eng by Paul Northfield)
3. Kimbra — Warrior (eng by Mark Foster and Isom Innis)
4. Radiohead — 15 Step (eng by Nigel Godrich)
5. Deathcab For Cutie — St. Peter's Cathedral (eng by Alan Moulder)
6. KayoDot — A Pitcher of Summer (eng by Jim Fogarty)
7. Thiry Seconds To Mars — Kings and Queens (eng by Ryan William and Tom Biller)
8. Periphery — Mile Zero (eng byTaylor Larson)
9. Siriusmo — Mbox (eng by Mortiz Friedrich)
