The summer was filled with house projects, recording projects, and yes, even a bit of traveling and relaxing as we went on summer break following our first year teaching at UW Oshkosh. Some of our home improvements included painting and updating the basement, as well as giving our front entrance a nice facelift. We also had the chance to catch up a lot with family.
Over the course of the summer months, I continued work on the Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra live recording project, enjoying several listening and note-taking sessions with composer John Harmon and orchestra conductor Dan Black. I also spent time continuing to mix songs for a great upcoming album by Cody Statz, and squeezed in a few acoustic gigs including Crescendo in Madison, WI.
There was also a lot of preparation and anticipation leading into the Fall semester. We have a large class of incoming Freshman who seem eager to learn and get involved. This semester’s classes include Recording Technology I, Audio for Video, Recording Studio Procedures, Practicum, and Internships. The office is primed and ready to go, and I’m looking forward to the cooler Fall weather. Here we go!
