From composing to recording to performing, technology is integral to the music industry. It’s used to manufacture instruments, broadcast sound, and package and market artists and performers.
“Anyone involved in any way with music on any level is dealing with technology in some way,” says music Professor Mark Chubb. “I can’t think of a way that the music industry does not use technology.”
Chubb is offering a free workshop on music technology on Saturday, Jan. 23, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the music building. RSVP by Friday, Jan. 22 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop is designed to help those with an interest in computer and music technology, such as K-12 teachers, students and church leaders. They can learn to solve hardware and software problems and compose and produce music in a home or portable studio. Chubb, who has produced music for film and television and taught music technology for seven years, will explain computer terminology and give best practices for using technology.
“Technology infuses our personal and professional lives. I hope this workshop will help people to fully use technology to realize their creative potential,” he says.
Chubb has produced music for Iowa Public Television and the Chrysalis Foundation. His music has appeared in Computer Music magazine and has been performed at the University of Iowa, Western Washington University and the Midwest Composer’s Symposium. Most recently, he scored for the short feature “Drain Desert Tanner,” which won six awards, including Best Music Score, at the 48 Hours Inland Empire Film Festival.
