Les Paul's Big Sound Experience at Saint Rose

les paul touring exhibitSaint Rose will be hosting a traveling interactive exhibit called Les Paul's Big Sound Experience May 4-5 out the college's Hearst Center for Communications and Interactive Media on Madison Ave. Blurbage:

The giant, state-of-the-art traveling exhibit will take visitors behind the scenes and into the world of the music legend. Guests will be able to mix and share music, explore Paul's sound, music and technology innovations, witness how Paul pushed the limits of audio technology and learn how Paul's inventions and techniques have formed the foundation of live and recorded music enjoyed by generations. An interactive digital experience allows visitors to create their own 20-second sound recording and share their "new sound" via social media. Guests can memorialize their visit with a fun photo capture experience that places them in the picture with a classic image of Paul to save, send and post to social networks. A double-sided listening station allows visitors to hear performances from all periods of Paul's long career.

Here's a short video that gives some sense of what the exhibit is like.

The exhibit will be open both days from noon-8 pm at Saint Rose. It's free. Also:

+ Faculty members will be performing a concert tribute Paul's compositions and inventions May 4 at the Massry Center.

+ Sean McClowry, an assistant professor of music industry, will be giving talk about Paul May 5 at 2:30 pm and 5:30 pm in the Jack's Place space in the Hearst Center.
