What is audio engineering?
When you think of a recording studio or a live concert, audio engineers are the people who get everything up and running, and keep things on track behind the scenes. Duquesne offers a Music Technology major, in which students get to have hands-on experience with high-end gear, but the Audio Engineering Society (AES) provides even more opportunities for learning new techniques, getting to try out new gear, and making connections with other engineers.
What do we do?
AES meets on a regular basis so that students interested in the audio industry can:
● learn about new technology
● share their projects to get feedback
● pursue professional experiences through conventions such as AES and the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM)
● hear from guest speakers in the industry Membership is open to the entire Duquesne University student body, not just music technology majors. All are welcome!
Why are we crowdfunding?
We are proud to say that we will be returning to the AES convention in New York City in late October! However, we have a record number of members in attendance this year with 21 students. Later in January members are looking to attend the NAMM Show in Anaheim for the first time. This crowdfunding campaign will go towards these trips, as well as allowing us to schedule guest speakers as well, obtaining professional insight on the audio industry. None of these opportunities would be possible without your contribution!
