In DIGA 361: Audio Recording and Production, students learn to work in Stetson’s recording studio and use multitrack DAWs to complete a range of projects. For their final project, students spend 5 weeks pursuing projects of their choice to demonstrate their skills. This may range from a studio recording with a local band to a spoken-word piece with accompanying music to a MIDI rendition of an orchestral work.
This year, we have revived an old practice of gathering all the projects together in a compilation that we share. This used to be done with CD-R copies for the students, but with today’s ease of digital distribution we thought, “why not make an MP3 mixtape and share it with the world.” If you want to hear the work that these 17 students did, simply click the link below to begin downloading. Once completed, unzip the archive and import the MP3s into your iTunes or other MP3 library. Enjoy!

Parker Chapman (Chemistry 2009) may not have majored in Digital Arts, but he definitely enjoyed taking electives in the program, like DIGA 101 and 361. Parker was able to develop his skills and pursue his passion for making music in the recording studio. That work has continued since graduating and resulted in a EP called, Three or Four Words. The 6-tracks are for sale as a digital download with all proceeds going to Smile Train. Parker is currently applying to med schools and continues to record whenever he finds the time.
