On view September 18, 2013 – January 19, 2014, Matisse’s Marguerite: Model Daughter brings together more than 40 works from the BMA and other public and private collections to show Marguerite over the course of 45 years.

Loyola Alum to Coach New MLL Franchise

November 22nd, 2013 by Justin Thomas

9479073The MLL (Major League Lacrosse) just added a new expansion team called the Florida Launch. The Launch’s first ever coach will be none other than Loyola alum Stan Ross.

Ross graduated from Loyola in 1995 and played lacrosse as a defender for the Hounds for three years. Ross even started his coaching career in 1995 as an undergraduate assistant coach for the Greyhounds.

Ross has also coached at the University of Denver and Princeton University, but was most recently an assistant coach for the Denver Outlaws, an MLL team who went 14-0 last year with Ross on staff.

Ross has said, “It is an honor to be named the first head coach in Florida Launch history,” and we certainly wish him all the best. For more information on the MLL and the Florida Launch, visit the website here.

RadioEdu Week 09

November 22nd, 2013 by Jonathan Prozzi

Concepts: Advanced Audio Editing for Loops, Mic Awareness for Live Recording

This was an abbreviated week, so we focused mainly on reviewing concepts from previous weeks while also discussing some of the ‘unseen’ studio skills regarding awareness of one’s surroundings while working with live mics. Throughout the last several weeks I’ve been providing tips to the students while they are recording. These are usually centered around awareness while recording, such as making sure one is aware of touching the mic cables while they are recording as this causes a ‘spike’ in the recording. Some of the other concepts that we’ve been practicing include making sure that they are at an acceptable and consistent distance from the mics, and also making sure we practice talking in loud and confident voices so that there is less need to boost the gain after the recording. The students have been improving in these areas over the weeks, and this was a time to check in on their progress and review these ‘hidden’ skills that have been improving.

We also delved further into the realm of loop editing and the process of cutting sounds and segments from a larger audio file in order to create their own rhythms and grooves. The students ultimately will produce soundbeds for their own segments as well as an introduction for their own radio segment, and so this skill review was a great reminder of how far they’ve come and also helped clarify upcoming goals.
