CCM partnered with L-Acoustics, the market leader in professional sound reinforcement technologies, to bring that company’s groundbreaking “L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound” technology to the CCM stage. In conjunction with BlackTrax, Mid America Sound Corporation and Loud & Clear Inc., the L-Acoustics team was able to provide CCM students, faculty and staff with a 3D sonic canvas to convey their art with unprecedented realism.
This collaboration did not go unnoticed and Lighting & Sound America magazine featured the partnership in its April/May 2020 issue. Speaking of the technology, L-Acoustics application engineer Jordan Tani told the magazine, “This is the first time it’s been used in an academic setting in the United States.”
Tani also praised the students in CCM’s BFA and MFA Sound Design programs, telling Lighting & Sound America, “They have all been quick to adapt to the new technology, and it’s been great working with them on the process. They are all equally talented and quick on their feet to troubleshoot if issues arise; these students are the future engineers, designers, and techs of our industry, and I look forward to working with them in the future.”
