New York (September 15, 2011)—Women’s Audio Mission, a San Francisco based non-profit dedicated to the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts, will participate in the 131st AES Convention, October 20 – 23, 2011 in New York City.
Located at booth # 131, Women’s Audio Mission (or WAM) will showcase Sound Channel, a unique spin on audio production training that provides gender-balanced, college-tested online training materials. Sound Channel brings WAM’s audio curriculum to individuals (men and women alike) without the financial or geographic means to access audio education programs. Sound Channel’s interactive, self-paced training materials are available entirely online through a growing e-library of videos and modules.
“Sound Channel’s online library of training modules thoroughly demonstrate audio production and recording concepts with audio comparisons, video and animated visual examples that make them perfect for both at home and in-classroom use,” says Terri Winston, WAM Founder and chief engineer. “We’re looking forward to connecting with potential Sound Channel users at AES, as well as other educators and engineers at the convention this year. Their feedback is an invaluable resource that helps WAM continually expand and improve Sound Channel.”
Sound Channel is now available to individuals for a small monthly subscription (ranging from $25 per month to $90 total for six months), with discounted group licensing packages available to schools. Students need only an Internet connection, browser and set of speakers or headphones to participate. No special equipment is required and the materials are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Since its initial launch last November, Sound Channel has reached over 5,600 students in 92 countries and colleges nationwide have begun incorporating the program into their curriculum.
