Boston University (Waltham, Mass.) will add a recording arts program to its curriculum in the fall of 2006. Norman Brzycki, director of operations for the university’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts, has retained the Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG) to create the new facility.
Recording arts program director Jeanine Cowen says the new program will focus on creating music and sound for film and video/computer games. “Because audio design is evolving rapidly, we were committed to providing students with a cutting-edge facility. Architect/acoustician John Storyk is a recognized expert. We are confident that our WSDG-designed complex will meet our students’ immediate and long-term needs.”
The 5,000-square-foot studio complex will include spacious control and live rooms, dedicated classrooms and related support space. The highly specialized nine-month course will be limited to 12 students per instructor. Enrollment in multiple classes is currently underway.
