My name is Jake Foster and my topic is on Audio Engineering. My goals are to intern with Atlanta Sound and Lighting, where my facilitator works, in order to make connections in the industry and eventually earn a career in Audio Engineering. Either in live production work or studio production. I intend to work in the Audio Engineering field, and after completing the project I feel more comfortable about how I fit into the industry.
The topic of my Research Paper was “How does music affect mood and behavior?”. I found many interesting answers. For instance, grocery stores will play specifically chosen music in order to keep the shoppers buying. Also, it has been found that classical music helps students to comprehend more while they study. Interestingly, music also plays a huge effect on a person’s mood, the tone of the music generally translates to the tone of the person listening.
My product is a beat that I created by myself in FL Studio. This relates to my Research Paper because I learned that the different tones and sounds that go into the music all blend together to give the track an overall tone. Just by sitting in my room and messing with the audio I was able to create many different effects that could produce any number of emotions, good or bad. I had to overcome several obstacles, one of which was my facilitator being on tour in Europe, another was learning how to operate the software to create the music.
After spending time first-hand learning about the industry I feel very comfortable on my fit. I was able to get along with those working in the field, and I felt as if I were a good match My intention to make a career out of this was furthered by my experience on the Senior Project. For the solo portion of the project, I was able to feel comfortable with my abilities in FL Studio, which complements my intentions to make a career out of it.
Personally, I feel that the project has been a very good learning experience for me. Had I not participated in the project, I would not know as much as know now about music in general, but also the production of it. Thank you so much for your time.
