Back to the Future: Reintroducing Analog and Vinyl Audio Production to Digital Natives
Back to the Future: Reintroducing Analog and Vinyl Audio Production to Digital Natives
This paper describes a case study involving the reintroduction of analog vinyl theory and production practice at Ryerson University.  In order to quickly meet student and industry demand, an industry partnership approach was used involving a manufacturer of new vinyl pressing equipment, a major vinyl pressing plant, as well as a local vinyl mastering facility.  New supporting curriculum was “triaged” into an existing audio theory course and students formed a production collective with the objective of producing a quality vinyl showcase of student-produced music.  The result was “The Resurgence,” a vinyl release that achieved acclaim and generated even more interest in the wider student population for a continuation and expansion of the analog curricular initiative.

Teaching STEM in Higher Education with Acoustical Engineering
Teaching STEM in Higher Education with Acoustical Engineering
Providing strong foundational STEM skills is essential for first-year students starting their academic careers in engineering programs.  An Introduction to STEM course introduces students to design principles and soft skills that enable students to be successful in higher-education.  A study of acoustical engineering within a computer science context was added to an Introduction to STEM course to preface a real-world acoustical problem that students could readily identify in a local auditorium.  Students learned to solve acoustical problems through analysis with Python code and then by creating 3-D simulations in the Unity game engine.  Incorporating acoustical engineering into the STEM program created an opportunity to solve real-world problems using science and engineering.

Introducing music production using historical context: The particular case of the record industry in Colombia
Introducing music production using historical context: The particular case of the record industry in Colombia
In this paper, we describe the implementation of a music production and recording course in which students researched and analyzed different aspects that define the evolution of record productions from the perspective of the album as an aesthetic concept.  Such a course was divided into two stages: (1) Students researched the historical meaning of albums in their music collections in order to learn about basic terms and concepts that they could use to analyze, discuss and understand these processes.  (2) Subsequently, they applied these concepts, approaches, and perspectives to their own work to replicate the technical-aesthetic elements of key productions and their protagonists, which will inspire their conceptions of art and sound.

Acoustics Study in Audio Curricula, an Overview and Summary
Acoustics Study in Audio Curricula, an Overview and Summary
The integration of acoustics into university audio curricula varies greatly.  Some institutions have no acoustics course, some institutions require a class in another department (e.g., engineering or physics), many institutions have one dedicated class in the audio curriculum, and a few institutions have more than one relevant course. Most cover the nature of sound waves and vibration, sound propagation, room acoustics, sound level and its measurement.  Some cover musical instrument acoustics and the various historical tuning systems. Institutions with more than one acoustics-related course typically include some in-depth study of psycho-acoustics.  The paper includes an annotated bibliography that lists the textbooks commonly used and the content areas that they focus on.

Strategies for teaching digital audio theory to music students
Strategies for teaching digital audio theory to music students
In this paper, effective classroom strategies are presented for teaching digital audio theory to music students. Particularly challenging for the professor is that many music/audio engineering/technology programs (often based in schools or colleges of music) do not include long sequences of coursework leading up to a traditional engineering-based digital signal processing course.  As a result, students may be entering their digital audio courses without prior experience in signals and systems, differential equations, Laplace theory, calculus or electrical circuit theory.  Here a methodology for teaching digital audio to music students is presented incorporating three basic principles of multimedia learning.

Curricular design of the audio emphasis route within the Universidad El Bosque music program: A space for creation and technological mediation for the cultural and creative industries
This process of curricular design responds to the need to expand the creative, labor, business and general innovation possibilities of music students during the professional cycle of the musical program, and especially within the emphasis of audio production.  In other words, the reform process has as a general objective to contextualize the implications of interdisciplinary creation research and innovation work of different value chains within the cultural and creative industries, where the appropriation of technological tools and competencies in audio add value to artistic (or simple) creation through its transformation from different technical/artistic production and postproduction processes, which give rise to complex creations in the form of products, services and results within different scenarios of large-scale reproduction.

Teaching Acoustics to Audio Students: A Middle Path
This paper describes the course Acoustics: Physics of Sound, which teaches the science of acoustics to Audio Technology majors at American University. Pedagogically, this course seeks to be more rigorous than typical introductory courses to non-science majors, yet also avoids the fully calculus-based approach of higher level engineering courses.  Audio students' salient strengths, including familiarity with critical listening, as well as software and microphones, can be leveraged to foster deeper understanding in the language they already know - that of sound itself.

A Method for Program-Level Academic Review and Revision in Audio Education
A Method for Program-Level Academic Review and Revision in Audio Education
During the 2016-2017 academic year, the faculty at Webster University began the process of program-level review of the B.A. in Audio Production.  The two-year study revealed gaps and overlaps in the curriculum as well as areas where the curriculum no longer aligned with industry norms or employer expectations.  In the year following the review, a large-scale revision was devised based on the data and feedback from the program review.  This paper examines the process and results of the review as well as the methods used for building both a new B.A. and new B.S. in the study of audio at Webster.  The 2019-2020 academic year was the first time that the new programs have been taught.

Fluctuation in Immersive Productions
Fluctuation in Immersive Productions
Immersive offers the possibility of realistically reproducing spatiality; that is one of its most impressive properties. This gives the listener the feeling of being in the recording room. One of the key parameters in this context is fluctuation: It has a strong influence on the liveliness of the sound and the perceived size of the recording room. Fluctuation appears most pronounced in large churches and concert halls as spatiality of room sound at low frequencies. In popular music, however, the proportion of room sound is relatively low compared to classical music. However, we can create spatiality by moving direct sound.
 
In his video workshop, Lasse Nipkow explains how he creates spatiality with direct sound from acoustic instruments and synthetic sounds and thus creates fluctuations for Immersive. He does this on the basis of psychoacoustic phenomena and impressive sound samples in stereo.

Active Learning in Audio Education: How Classroom Space Affects Pedagogy
Audio programs in higher education cross many disciplinary boundaries.  This ensures that classroom and space needs for one program might not satisfy another.  Classroom space influences, and often limits, how instructors can help advance student knowledge.  This paper is an examination of how classrooms can affect teaching methodology, including peer and active learning, in audio and adjacent disciplines.  Recent pedagogical trends in classroom design are also examined for applicability in audio education.  As capital projects such as building or renovations do not always happen in a predictable or convenient timeline, this paper will suggest ways to better utilize existing space.  Further dialog on these topics could serve to make the higher education experience more engaging for faculty and students.

Audio Podagogy: A Scaffolded Podcast-Based Approach to Teaching Audio Production Fundamentals
This case study looks at the redevelopment of the mandatory first-year introductory audio production course at Ryerson University’s RTA School of Media. With the aim of developing fundamental audio production skills that sustain students in future productions across a range of media disciplines, the instructional design team created a podcast-based pedagogy wherein each student develops a pilot for a podcast series. This complex project is achieved through a scaffolded process wherein the podcast is broken down into smaller components that realize student competencies in studio and field recording, editorial, mixing, sound design and live radio production. Beyond these core competencies, students emerge with portfolio-ready material that is a strong indicator of their media production talents.
Professor Michael Murphy, Ryerson University, was a co-author on thisPaper, but will not be presenting.

Scaling student sessions – Syllabi elements that enable one student’s recording session to advance all students’ learning
Scaling student sessions – Syllabi elements that enable one student’s recording session to advance all students’ learning
Independent, student-led recording sessions are an essential part of audio education.  However, studio resources are a finite asset.  Students and educators long for more studio time; administrators need to see maximum return on facility investments.  While many learning models exist, pedagogy motivated by experiential learning theories can inform the design of in-studio assignments, strategically tied to specific in-class activities, which can better leverage limited studio experiences across a class population.  Formal apprenticeships are a proven way for the audio student to obtain a deep practical skillset.  This paper shares elements of syllabi which have been shown to improve outcomes related to audio engineering practice, achieved within the more typical curriculum model that includes on-campus, semester-long applied recording courses.

Dolby Workshop: Meeting the demand for Dolby Atmos immersive audio creation training
Consumer and industry demand for Dolby Atmos immersive audio is taking off. This is true for not only film and TV, but also for music and gaming. This demand from consumers, creators, and service providers is driving a groundswell of demand for Dolby Atmos content and for the people who can create it.
To meet this demand, it is critical that the pool of trained mixers, sound engineers, and facilities grow proportionately. Dolby Atmos immersive audio training must be accessible everywhere and to anyone, from students to experienced mixers and sound engineers.
Dolby has been working with our ecosystem partners and with educational institutions to address this need and together we have created resources to assist in building this training. This session will cover why you should be teaching immersive mixing in Dolby Atmos. It will then address how you can access the tools and resources that Dolby and our partners have put together to assist you in building your curriculum to educate and empower your students to create great immersive audio.

Signal Flow Training with Virtual Simulations as a Co-Curricular Tool
Signal Flow Training with Virtual Simulations as a Co-Curricular Tool
Many traditional pedagogical approaches to signal flow training were forced to be rethought at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This unprecedented event forced educators to reevaluate curriculum and tools for distance learning.  In an effort to adapt courses to online formats, educational programs revealed the growing consensus that virtual simulations can be effective for console and signal flow training.  The objective of this paper is to document the impact of virtual simulations in audio education amid social restrictions and to highlight their relevance for post-pandemic conditions.  Observations of the progress of educators and students who used virtual simulations in their studio or live sound courses will be combined with survey and user engagement data collected over the semester to support the results.

The Junior Producers Club: A case study of utilizing a community outreach to promote diversity, independent thinking and music production
This article is a case study of a community outreach realized through an immersive learning audio course. Audio students from Ball State installed a project studio at a community center in an underserved neighborhood of Muncie.  They worked with middle schoolers, instructing them in basic signal-flow, recording, DAW operation and music-theory. The highly successful project has provided significant insight into curriculum design to create a diverse classroom and expand the cultural horizon of audio students.  The article outlines the various phases of the project, the equipment used, the teaching approaches and the challenges associated with socio-economic aspects of the community.  It serves as a guide for those interested in doing a similar project.

Teaching audio signal processing using a digital audio workstation as the calculator
Teaching audio signal processing using a digital audio workstation as the calculator
Signal processing is a valuable topic for audio engineering students to learn. It is an aspect of audio that connects the practical systems encountered by engineers with technical theory from mathematics to explain how those systems work. From an educational perspective, it is a useful topic for teaching general critical thinking and problem solving. However, signal processing is not always presented in an accessible way for audio engineering students. In many educational programs, students must learn computer programming, electrical engineering, and physics before taking a signal processing course. An alternative approach to teach signal processing to undergraduate audio students has been developed which leverages digital audio workstation (DAW) software. Topics, outcomes, and example exercises from a course will be presented.

Lessons learned teaching broadcast audio on a university TV production truck
This paper will describe the discovery of learning opportunities and the evolution of teaching strategies in Middle Tennessee State University's mobile broadcast audio curriculum.  MTSU has a five-year history of recording live musical performances at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival using an outside-broadcast truck crewed by video and audio production students.  Along with incremental changes to the audio systems design over this period, there have been parallel developments in team management and instructional methods to support student learning.  A live broadcast environment presents novel challenges to audio students who are accustomed to traditional studio recording.  But with suitable methods, including safeguards that permit experimentation and discovery, remote productions can be a valuable complement to studio-based audio instruction.

Inclusivity in Immersive Audio: Current Participation and Barriers to Entry
Media and entertainment companies have embraced immersive audio technology for cinema, television, games and music.  Meanwhile, in recent years there has been a rise in the number of organizations welcoming underrepresented groups to the field of audio.  Although some disciplines such as music recording are seeing an increase in participation, others are not keeping pace.  Immersive and spatial audio are disciplines in which diversity is measurably lacking.  Mixed-gender social media groups focused on audio are composed of less than 10 percent women and minorities, and groups dedicated to immersive audio exhibit poorer representation. Barriers to entry are societal as well as economic; however, outreach, networking opportunities, mentoring and affordable education are remedies have been shown to be effective for related industries.

Precursor criteria for assessing the effectiveness of technical ear training program
Precursor criteria for assessing the effectiveness of technical ear training program
Three precursor criteria were developed for assessing the effectiveness of technical ear training programs (TETPs): the program must have clearly stated, professionally relevant goals; performance relating to the goals must be measured; and performance must be measured separately from the training program on an independent task.  Eight spectral-based student-targeted TETPs were reviewed against these criteria.  The review found that none of the eight programs met all precursor criteria as users' performance was measured on the TETP itself or on a similar task to that which students had previously trained.  The deployment of a TETP that meets the precursor criteria is then detailed; however, despite meeting the criteria, a large-scale study did not provide evidence of the TETP's effectiveness.

Ambisonics in an Art School Context
Ambisonics in an Art School Context
Ambisonics is a theoretically robust method for soundfield reproduction, particularly at higher orders. However, audio professionals have remained skeptical, preferring instead a discrete channel paradigm. Some of this stems from a lack of understanding of the core mathematical theory. Therefore, the researchers have taught ambisonics with an emphasis on practical implementation. In this paper, we reflect on this teaching experience and, via a further study with postgraduate students, we propose a definitive and accessible pedagogical framework for ambisonic theory. This framework also facilitates the development of mathematical intuition without resorting to complex notation. Instead, a constructivist approach to learning is deployed via small-scale projects that empower students to explore the fundamental theories of ambisonics while also creating engaging content.

This paper examines the changing profile of audio production students as the professional audio learning experience morphs from the apprenticeship model once prevalent in commercial recording studios to learning in college and university environments.  It discusses how the skills that were once the preserve of professional sound engineers, recordists, mixers, and electronic musicians are now prevalent throughout the music industry, and how, in many cases, the changing industry now requires musicians to be self-sufficient in terms of recording and producing their own work.  There is an emphasis on how students in any program of study within music-making should have opportunities for learning these skills in order to work as professional musicians upon graduation.

Mastering The Void: A Missing Link in UK Audio Education?
Addressing the Void: A missing link⏤Audio Mastering Education
The United Kingdom has shifted higher education (HE) policy from a purely educational standpoint to a vocational one in recent times.  This is against a political backdrop that includes a fierce marketization of the sector, rated by metrics about employability, vocationality and student satisfaction.  Despite this vocationality, one area of audio engineering continues to present a void⏤audio mastering.  Drawing upon data of undergraduate provision and several interviews with lecturers, this paper explores this perceived mismatch in audio mastering training provision and queries whether this is an international phenomenon.

Lethbridge Lament: Exploring musical genres through experimental learning
Lethbridge Lament: Exploring musical genres through experimental learning
Studio residencies and live events with visiting artists provide post-secondary audio educators with opportunities to involve an entire program in learning engineering and production practices, sociocultural aspects of music creation, and research methods. A Master of Arts student conducted a case study to examine the creative processes of The Sweet Boys with video artist Nicole Cobb. Her analyses of an interview with the band, observation notes from recording sessions, and participation in pedagogical assignments underline how popular music subgenres are connected to sociology, musicology, and audio production techniques. We discuss how these pedagogical approaches facilitate experiential, situated, and integrated learning of the communication, inter-personal, and critical thinking skills required to challenge the culture of the commercial recording studio.

Zen of Critical Listening: What is the true goal of technical ear training?
Zen of Critical Listening: What is the true goal of technical ear training?
Critical listening is essential for sound recording, mixing, and mastering to obtain high-quality sound. A systematic training curriculum for critical listening can help trainees become expert listeners in a reduced amount of time relative to similar experiences gained in a job setting. The workshop aims to discuss the opinions of educators regarding the necessary features and methods for efficient ear training and to share their in-depth expertise. Furthermore, the workshop aims to share the micro and macro points of view of ear training: training methods, sound samples used, acquired skills by trainees, and social impacts on the audio and electro-acoustic R&D industry.

Expanding in Reverse: Rediscovering Predecessors in an Electronic Music History Course
Expanding in Reverse: Rediscovering Predecessors in an Electronic Music History Course
The study of history in music technology is traditionally based on strictly electronic music from the Western canon.  But strong historical relationships exist between music that uses electronics and earlier music driven by older technologies.  Reframing the definition of “technology” inspired the expanding of a typical electronic music history course into one that now integrates the contributions of pre-electronic artists and tools.  This has introduced students to a much greater historical continuity and a wider range of artists, inventors and tools.

Syllabus of Technical Listening Training in Kyushu University
Syllabus of Technical Listening Training in Kyushu University
This paper focuses on the syllabus of a technical listening and ear training course in Kyushu University’s School of Design.  The author gives ear training to about 50 students in a class.  The first step is discerning a difference.  The next step is identification of sound pressure level. Training drills to identify pure tone frequencies and the center frequency of band-passed noise help students to acquire the concepts of frequency and spectrum.  Training then proceeds to the identification of the center frequency of octave band equalizers. Results drawn from the past ten years of training data are also described in this paper.

The Reflection Video: Students Assess their Virtual Exchange Experiences
The Reflection Video: Students Assess their Virtual Exchange Experiences
As a professor at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, I have been a collaborator on virtual exchanges with Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland, and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.  These virtual exchanges, termed Global Learning Experience (GLE) at DePaul, focused on sound design and music collaborations.  The final assignment of the project asked each student to record short reflection videos on their experiences during the GLE.  These videos were recorded using a webcam or cellphone.  The deliverable was not meant to be a highly edited and polished video but a document that reflected the positive and negative elements of the collaboration.

The Fastmusic Box: Networked Musical Lessons
The Fastmusic Box: Networked Musical Lessons
Networked musical lessons are technically demanding because of tight latency requirements. Typically, an acoustic one-way delay of 25 milliseconds or less needs to be achieved if two musicians want to play in sync. We have developed the Fastmusic Box (FMB), a system that automatically analyzes the given system and network setup to identify all issues which hinder a low delay transmission of audio.  In this publication, we describe the algorithms implemented in the FMB.  Beside these technical aspects, hundreds of music students and teachers used the FMB to continue to sing, play and rehearse music together during the last months of social distancing.  This paper reports on their experiences.
