The University of Saint Francis Music Technology Program is celebrating major awards earned by students in a recent international competition.

Music Technology professors Miles Fulwider and Mark Everetts took 11 students to the Audio Engineering Society (AES) Convention in New York City from Oct. 25 to 27. The convention includes the International Student Recording Competition. “This competition sees steep participation from the biggest music and music technology programs,” Fulwider said.

Stacked up against the strong competition, four Saint Francis students won awards to represent the university in fine fashion:

Saint Francis senior Kyle Norbeck and sophomore Louie Perl won a Silver Award in Modern Studio Recording & Electronic Music with “Cries of Pleasure, Heavenly Pain.”

Saint Francis senior Drew Mosier and freshman Kennedy Sites won a Bronze Award in Sound for Visual Media with “Taking the Stage.”

Fulwider and Everetts hope to make a trip to the Audio Engineering Society Convention into an annual experience for Music Tech students.
