It’s not every day you get to stand in the presence of royalty, but last week, Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy students got a chance to meet a real, live Queen of Rock.
Before her concert at Lincoln Hall, the legendary Wanda Jackson sat down in her dressing room with six students from Film & Broadcast and Recording Arts to talk about her storied past, her new resurgence among a young fanbase, working with Jack White (The White Stripes, Rancontours), and releasing The Party Ain’t Over.
Watch Wanda perform with special guest Jack White on The Late Show with David Letterman:

The 129th AES Convention in San Francisco was once again held at the Moscone Center.
Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy was asked to serve on the panel at the Education Forum. This year’s topic was Creating the Out-of-Class Experience. Our presentation was titled PRODUCTION IN ACTION: An Innovative Approach to Collaboration with the Industry. Alex Case, AES Education Committee Chair, moderated the 90 minute session.
Other educators and professionals on the panel included Agniezka Roginska, Paul Geluso, and John Storyk representing New York University, and Nathan Breitling, Ryan Kleeman representing Art Institute of California.
Hundreds of exhibitors filled the large hall. Boutique manufacturers of everything from high-end analog front end mic pres and eqs to medium and large format consoles to loudspeakers were on display. We noticed a remarkable resemblance in many of these new products to designs of the past.
TFMAA also had a table at the Education Fair. More schools than ever were present talking with prospective students of audio programs. Sam Pasquesi, Tom Siuchninski, Dakota Serviss, Adam Hajnos, and Kyle Olson all made the trip to represent the Recording Arts Department and institution.

Chris Sphar, a representative from Sennheiser & Neumann microphones, led a workshop at Tribeca Flashpoint as part of the company’s educational division, “Sound Academy.”
Chris Spahr was joined by Nick Eipers, the president and recording engineer of “Chicago Sessions” – a local Chicago jazz music label. The workshop was intended to expose our students the process of managing and executing a recording session from the perspective of a microphone manufacturer and a Jazz music recording engineer.
The Jazz combo, lead by pianist Matt Nelson, was recorded with using only Sennheiser and Neumann microphones.
During the workshop, Chris demonstrated Neumann’s new digital studio microphones “Solution-D” and the new Sennheiser MK4 [below]. These microphones were placed along side other industry standard microphones for the recording session so students could compare by listening to the results first hand.

JumpStarts are always about learning. Today’s was not just about learning, but also about giving back.
Scott Case, President & CEO of Malaria no more, presented over 100 Tribeca Flashpoint students with a unique JumpStart this morning: instead of the usual speaker presentation and Q&A, he presented a challenge: Come up with an innovative, fresh way to persuade the public to join the fight to end malaria by 2015.
Nine student groups were each presented with a different audience – from tweens to African parents to the United States Congress – and a specific message targeting how that group can help. Groups were given 30 minutes to brainstorm and storyboard one or more concepts for how they would spread the message.
With only 30 minutes, our Flashpoint students’ creativity really shined – the concepts ranged from a Facebook game where users could “Swat the mosquitoes” to virtually save their Facebook friends from malaria to powerful PSA’s using chalk drawings of children to show that small donations could save a child – but our Congress can save thousands more.
Case told the group that in just 30 minutes they had developed more new concepts and ideas than Malaria No More had been able to develop in the last year, and that all of the ideas would be taken back to the home office for further development.
