|Course Objectives:||This course aims to introduce to the students the concept of live sound and real-time workflow. Enrolled students will study theoretical concepts on sound system design, live sound equipment and terminology, concert acoustical space properties and also will experience the hands-on work practice in real-world scenarios as well as developing skills of professional behavior and communication which is a must in live sound industry.|
The students who have succeeded in this course;
I. Understand the goal of live sound engineering.
II. Develop the skill to adapt everyday-changing systems and environment, meanwhile maintain consistency.
III. Introduce the sound systems design and applications.
IV. Introduce the signal flow of a live sound system, installation and operation.
V. Develop the skill of real-time workflow and endure substantial stress of working conditions.
VI. Develop professional understanding of engaging other working parties in the industry.
VII. Understand the concepts of entertainment business.
