Live Sound Camp for Girls

June 26 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until June 30, 2017

 

The Miners Foundry and SoundGirls.org are pleased to present Live Sound Camp for Girls, June 26-30, 2017.  The SoundGirls.org Live Sound Camp for Girls is a one-week camp for young women (ages 12-18) who want to learn about live music production.  The camp curriculum was designed by industry veterans and teaches the skills and technology to run live sound.  Working in small, collaborative and hands-on groups, the attendees learn:

  • Live Event Safety
  • Stage and Audio Terminology
  • Signal Flow, Setup and Wire PA Systems
  • Input Lists, Stage Plots
  • Microphone Techniques, Wiring Stages
  • Line Check, Sound Check, Mixing
  • Running and Working a Real Show

The week ends with the girls producing and running a live show at the Miners Foundry.  Each afternoon the girls will set up and mix local bands.  The girls will also receive a SoundGirls.Org t-shirt, a tool kit, and a copy of the Girls Guide to Doing Sound.  Lunch will be provided each day.  Financial assistance is available.   All genders and non-conforming genders welcome.

“If you have ever been interested in live sound production for concerts and other events, now is your chance to get real hands on experience.  Karrie Keyes, cofounder fo Soundgirls.org has been touring all over the world as monitor engineer with Pearl Jam (20+years) and did the same for Red Hot Chili Peppers before that.  She and her organization know their stuff and will take students through all ins and outs.  It will be a very fun, educational, and hands on experience.”
~ Greg Cameron, Miners Foundry Sound Engineer
