Dolan Recording Studio, located at 35 West 4th St.between Greene St. and Washington Sq. East.
“NYU students will have an excellent opportunity to have their work critiqued by several professional sound engineers and producers,” said Paul Geluso, master teacher in Steinhardt’s Music Technology program. “We will be holding listening and critique sessions with GRAMMY award-winning recording engineers Brandie Lane and Jim Anderson who will listen and critique the finalists. This is such a unique and exciting opportunity for students and we are so happy that Avid has agreed to partner with us.”
Student critiques will begin at 4:00 p.m. and are open to the public. Categories in the competition include: acoustic recording, studio recording, electronic, and sound for the moving image. Winners in each category will be announced at the Music Technology Open House award ceremony later that evening.
