The SArPA (Sound Art Production and Analysis) studio is an interdisciplinary creative space for composers, sound designers, and sound and video artists. It features a 7.1.4 Genelec monitor array suitable for mixing in 5.1 and 7.1 surround, ambisonics (immersive audio), and Dolby Atmos. Faculty and students have used this space to compose film scores, create immersive virtual reality work, and design scenes for video games. The studio also boasts more than 10,000 software instruments and hundreds of audio processing modules (“plug-ins”).
Coffee Street Studio is equal parts recording studio and classroom. Professional level microphones, instruments, and software are available to students from the first day of their first year. The space is highly modular and can be reconfigured to suit everything from a solo pianist to a full rock band. This studio also includes a trio of Moog analog synthesizers for extreme creativity and sound design.
