SWiTCH Hosts Music Tech themed Elementary School Field Trip

Recording “Imagine” in the Dolan Live Room

On Monday November 27th, The Society of Women in Technology (SWiTCH) hosted a Music Technology themed field trip for a group of elementary school students from the New Covenant Christian School in the Bronx.

Students were split into groups and got an opportunity to learn about virtual reality, acoustics, binaural technology, electronic/computer music, and the process of recording and engineering a song. Some of the activities included recording and engineering a rendition of “Imagine” by John Lennon with the Dolan Recording studio, making beats and grooves using “Groove Pizza” from musedlab, learning about what makes the “Virtual Barber Shop” binaural recording so intriguing, and testing out GearVR headsets with 3D audio.
