Future Foley artists were shown how today’s films utilize sound effects.
Today, 75 high school students were treated to a very informative and highly entertaining class: Introduction to Foley Recording and Editing, taught by Musicians Institute’s own Mehdi Hassine at The Grammy Museum.
The paint can is mic’ed up!
The Grammy Museum class covered in-depth demonstrations of creative computer-based sound design techniques using ProTools software and “old school” Foley techniques for film (using examples of footsteps, and plastic paint can sampling)!
“Great sound designers need to always be listening to the random sounds going on everywhere!”
Now in our fifth year of sponsoring outreach classes at The Grammy Museum that span contemporary music styles, sampling, beatmaking, film composing, music technology, music business, songwriting, music video creation, Foley techniques and rhythm workshops. We are proud to have shared the expertise, diverse knowledge and incredible talents of MI’s faculty with nearly 6,000 high school and middle school students from the greater LA area thru our outreach class program at The Grammy Museum!
We’re keeping our fingers on the pulse of the music (and music technology) industry, and continue to open the door of opportunity and creative experience thru the power of music education!
