DIY Acoustic Panels for Your Home Studio

Changing the Face of Sound

Changing the Face of Sound

Last September, I stumbled upon an IndieGoGo page asking for donations to “Send WAM to the 137th AES Convention!”  Their plea for funds was told by an endearing indie music video with lyrics like:

Help send WAM to the the AES Convention, 

Where we’ll see the latest audio inventions. 

The largest expo of audio professionals,

WAM’s booth will make AES more accessible.

WAM stands for Women's Audio Mission, and it is “a San Francisco-based non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts.” Their page explains that “in a field where women are critically under-represented (less than 5%), WAM seeks to ‘change the face of sound’ by providing hands-on training, experience, career counseling and job placement to women and girls in media technology for music, radio, film, television and the internet. WAM believes that women's mastery of music technology and inclusion in the production process will expand the vision and voice of media and popular culture.”

Now, this was something that I could get behind.
