Spring break is a time for students to take a break from their studies, to relax, and to catch up with friends. For the faculty however, spring break is a chance to spend some serious time working on projects both in and out of the classroom.

Walter Clissen, associate professor in the audio engineering department at Husson University’s New England School of Communications (NESCom) spent the majority of his spring break working on a musical project that spans the globe and brings together world-class talent. Clissen is in the mixing stage of a new album by artist José Feliciano in NESCom’s own Audio Control E. The project, which will be released as an album, has Feliciano playing guitar along with members of the Sofia Symphonic Orchestra and soprano Arno Raunig. It features operatic arias for castrati composed by Mozart which have never been transcribed for guitar. 

The album is being mixed in both stereo and Dolby 5.1 surround sound and will be released later this year.
