Equipment Manager: Every Sunday 12-2 Mason, Merritt, and Austin do sound lessons. This week we’ll be teaching live sound equipment. I’m also working on organizing the practice space so let me know if you have any suggestions. Our practice room light is out, so keep using the lamp. We’ll be throwing out some old cables, so if you’re interested in having some of those talk to Mason. We’ll be buying some auxiliary percussion instruments, if you have any recommendations for this let Mason know.

Studio Manager: Talk to me if you’re interested in recording music. In the studio sound class we test out new recording techniques, so come if you’re interested in that.

We are also implementing a penalty for leaving equipment out after practice times. Email vp@gtmn.org to book practice times.

President: If you have any general questions you can email me at HMurphy32@gatech.edu. I also work with Elliot on booking, so you can email me about that too. We have a full line up for Couchella this Spring and the event will be March 31st. You should also sign up on the musician’s network orgsync.

General Announcements:

Taylor: I’m in a band called Priam and we’re playing in a show February 24th at Centerstage. You can buy tickets from Taylor or Jed for $10, or buy them for $15 on the door. I’m also going to a concert this weekend.

Elliot: Going to see Quiet Hollers this weekend, let me know if you’re interested in going.

Varun: I’m a part of the GT Film Club and we’re looking for people to write scores this semester. Let me know if you’re interested. There are about 6 groups working on 6 different short films this semester so there’s an avenue for everybody. I’m also working on a personal project, a feature that I intend to shoot on campus in the fall. For this project, particularly, I am looking for people who can play classical music (on piano) and also people who are interested in creating unique EDM music for the film’s score. If you’re interested in scoring short films for the club, email (gtfilmclub@gmail.com). If you’re interested in scoring my feature, email vgiridhar1997@gmail.com.

Thomas: Going to see the Higher Brothers this Saturday. I’ll be having a pregame party so let me know if you’d like to join (thomas.spader@gatech.edu).

Heath: I’m still selling a keytar. I’m also going to a show in Athens on April 4th, you should go too.
