thefoodmarketWhat: The Food Market

Where: Hampden

The WLOY staff went out to brunch on Sunday, and if you ask anyone on staff  I think we can all agree how great this meal was. Whether for brunch or for dinner, you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. From the atmosphere of the restaurant to the food, it is perfection. Some of our favorites were the French Toast Dippers, the Amish Pretzels and the Croque Madame. Brunch may just be the most important meal of the day!

 Check out the menu and make a reservation now!

What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To?

February 13th, 2014 by Billy Dries

Childish-gambino-because-the-internetBrandon Newby – Childish GambinoBecause The Internet 

Released December 10, Donald Glover changed the whole entire game with his sophomore release. Shying away from the traditional sense of album development, he relied solely on the internet to create a buzz and the eventual explosion of excitement for his album. “Because The Internet” has aspects of traditional hip-hop, but he branches out by including his skills as a writer to give each song it’s own personality. So, as a fan of the arts in general, I feel that Glover changed the way albums should be created and everyone, I mean EVERYONE should go out and listen to this fine piece of aural cinema.

DSC_0135THATS RIGHT! SHE’S BACK!! This coming Thursday, Feb. 13th, the lovely Maria Dontas will be enchanting the 3rd Floor Reading room for a special singer-songwriter event. Maria is a brilliant musician and lyricist, with a set of pipes that will could quite possibly blow your tympanic  membranes, yes . . . both of them, at the same time. It is no coincidence that this heart-melter will be leading WLOY’s Valentines Day spectacular. On such an occasion, we will be going beyond our standard ticket raffle, rather hooking you up a lifetimes supply of sweet hearts!!!! Hooray!

But no, as much as you might crave sweetened chalk, WLOY will be raffling our Valentines Day bundle which includes $25 dinner coupon for Ryan’s Daughter at Belvedere Square, two free movie tickets at the Senator Theater, and free transportation by Uber taxi service. An amazing performance and potentially free dinner date for two? You would be a silly goose not to come. Show starts 9PM sharp!

Never had an angelic experience? Check Maria out here

RadioEdu Second Semester Week 3: Part 2

February 7th, 2014 by Jonathan Prozzi

Concepts: Project Planning for Music Production, Utilizing Grids as Guides

This week J and I also discussed some tips for more efficiently producing music and soundbeds. Thus far, J has done an excellent job creating his music tracks by exploring and experimenting, but I wanted to offer some compositional and organizational tips that he could utilize in his productions.

When we first began working with loop based production, the students developed their own method for tracking timing and placement of audio. Their natural technique was to utilize the ruler style time grid, and mark their start/stop points through its relative position on the grid. Included are some examples of their newer compositions using these newly introduced guidelines.
