Post Processing of The Three live on Nov 2016 thanks to DAD 350 students

Thanks to the performers and DAD Audio production students, we can record and mix live recordings that were operated by DSU Live members. I hope you enjoy their post-production outcomes from DAD 350 Recording Sessions classmates.  Individuals portrait different aspects and viewpoints, so there were no supervision and direction to present specific taste and sound.

DSU Live 2016 – The Three Concert

Article copied from Daily Leader Extra.

 

Trio concert Monday to kick off new season of DSU Live

THREE IN CONCERT — Local musicians Peter Kim (left), Sandra Champion, and Chris Champion together make “3 in Concert.” They will perform on Monday at 5:30 p.m. in the Tunheim Classroom Building auditorium. The concert is a kick-off for a new season of DSU Live.

 

It’s time for a revival of sorts at Dakota State University, a revival of live musical performances with DSU Live.

The live shows at DSU have been downplayed in recent history, said Peter Kim, assistant professor of audio productions.

He is also in charge of the DSU Live program and hopes to start this year’s performances off strong with a jazz/pop trio show called “3 in Concert.”

This kick-off event is scheduled for Monday at 5:30 p.m. in the Tunheim Classroom Building Auditorium on the DSU campus. Happy hour snacks will be served beginning at 5 p.m.

DSU director of music programs Sandra Champion provides vocals and plays the flute; local musician Chris Champion is on guitar and vocals; Kim plays bass.

The musicians like a variety of styles. Kim likes fusion jazz and funk.

Chris Champion said, “I do a little bit of everything,” giving an example from his standard Thursday night gig at Carnaval Brazilian Grill in Sioux Falls. “I play a little James Taylor, a little ZZ Top. I do whatever I feel like.”

What the trio feels like doing with this concert is reviving the DSU Live program to increase interest and promote the program, said Kim.

They will kick-start the season with the faculty trio and hopefully make it bigger and bigger other performances, he said.

The next planned concert is on Dec. 1 in the TC Underground. Three rock bands will be playing, including Wolf Skin.

DSU Alumni Composes Soundtrack for Documentary Film

Kristen Cooper, a graduate of the DSU Digital Arts and Design Program, specializing in Audio Production, has been featured in an article about her soundtrack composition for the documentary, “Cosplay Nation“!

Kristen has been especially active in electronic and MIDI composition, as well as performing as a DJ. “When I produce my own songs and remix,” said Cooper in the article, “the songs become dark trance more than anything. However, when I produce a piece of music like I did for ‘Cosplayer Nation’,  I base it off of more what they wanted it to sound like or genre they may want. This way I don’t stick to one genre and I adventure out.”

In addition to her work as a composer and producer of electronic music, Kristen has been a featured DJ at a number of events, including Sogen Con, Hetalia Masquerade Ball, Sodak, The Eclective Collective Fashion Show, CoreCon, and most recently, at Anime Fargo.

Kristen’s music can be heard on her SoundCloud website, and the article can be read at the website 925rebellion.com. We can’t wait to see what great work Kristen will do next!

DSU Live hosts folks band Condor

DSU Live, in collaboration with the Madison Area Arts Council, was excited to invite the Sioux Falls band Condor to perform a concert on the DSU Campus. Condor is unique in that they are a three-piece group with banjo, acoustic guitar, and cello. The band performed an extended set with a variety of original songs, and even threw in a surprising cello piece on Bach while a broken acoustic string was being replaced!

As is a traditional part of the concert series, we also recorded the audio of the show and will be sending it to SDPB radio to be broadcast on the show, “No Cover, No Minimum”. There was also student artwork on display from Cassie’s Design 2: Color class. The concert was a lot of fun, both in terms of listening, and practicing recording techniques. Here is a video of one of the songs, “Sunshine Wine”, with the mixed audio:

“Condor” to perform at DSU!

Condor is an outstanding folk trio from Sioux Falls, featuring cello, guitar, and banjo. They will be visiting DSU on Saturday, February 21st at 7:30pm for an intimate concert.

DSU Live and the Madison Area Arts Council are very excited to add another talented band to their series that has been running over the past several years. There are plans for Audio Production students to record the concert for potential airplay on South Dakota Public Broadcasting Radio. It looks to be a fantastic event!
