Women’s Audio Mission, a San-Francisco-based non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of women in the recording arts, inaugurates its newly-renovated facility with a Spring Workshop Series.

“Now that we’ve completed extensive acoustic upgrades, we can’t wait to resume our workshops in this new-and-improved setting, ” says WAM Executive Director Terri Winston. “So we’re kicking off 2010 with a great series of courses that are ideal for audio engineers at every level, from novice to pro.”

The series starts on March 11 with “Introduction to Sound for Film,” which describes the elements of sound for film and video, using examples from major motion pictures to illustrate techniques, technology and workflow. The class is taught by Pixar Animation Studios Media Systems Manager/Independent filmmaker M.T. Silvia, who brings more than 20 years of audio experience to her lecture.

In “Soldering Basic Audio Connections,” taught by Terri Winston, students will build their own microphone cable and learn about different types of cables, connections and jacks and how they are wired. “Contact Microphones and Sound Art,” led by award-winning filmmaker and media artist Kadet Kuhne, describes piezoelectric microphones and the interesting ways they can be used in the realm of sound art and sound design. Students will leave with a microphone that they constructed themselves.

Classes are open to the public; WAM members receive substantial discounts. For full details and registration information, visit www.womensaudiomission.org.
