Brian Tester, the Tech Coordinator at Metro, has started a Digital Music Club. He has transformed the once hodge-podge tech room into a studio able to handle about five club members at a time.
As part of this new initiative Brian is teaming up with the multi-talented Kokou Katamani and has built out a high-end multi-media station running Final Cut Studio (professional level video and music software).
Brian literally wrote the book on Ableton Live as he was a technical writer for them before he came to Envision. Ableton Live is like GarageBand on steroids: it enables students to record audio, sequence MIDI tracks, and make high-end original music. Brian is taking students to the new level of professional music recording. I’m looking forward to hearing some of the final products.
