DIAD Sound Engineering Workshop

May

19

ECSC Makerspace

Star Wars’ sound engineer Ben Burtt recorded the blaster sound effect, used in virtually every subsequent film and spinoff, with a contact microphone and a hammer.

The Design Initiative at Dartmouth (DIAD) invites you to join us in the new ECSC Makerspace to build your own contact microphone on Thursday May 19th from 2:30 - 4:30. Any skill level, from padawan to Jedi knight, is welcome.


This workshop is part of an Introduction to Sound Engineering series, where the art of film and the techniques of engineering come together. After building your mic, we hope you will join us for a screening of Memoria 5/20 at 7pm at the Hop, and a Q&A with the sound engineers from that film on 5/24 at 2:45 by Zoom (https://dartmouth.zoom.us/j/5824685027 Meeting ID: 582 468 5027).
