Electronic Music Production Electronic Music Production Program (full-time) The Electronic Music Production Program trains producers on a number of levels, from individuals who will be writing, recording, and producing their own work, to individuals who will be recording, and producing other artists’ works, to composers who will be writing, recording, and producing work for commercial purposes such as scores for film, TV, and games. The recording industry has changed significantly with the ongoing development of recording and producing software, such as Cubase that now allow producers to work independently outside of the studio environment. Often you will find producers only using commercial studios to finalize the mix. The other instruments, vocals, effects, and mixing, will be taken care of outside of the commercial studio, saving significant money for recording artists. Students in this program will be using either a Mac or PC laptop, an audio interface, and the following software (all of which they keep): Cubase, Ableton Live, Reason, and Native Instruments Komplete, Miroslav Philharmonik, and a mixing package. The students will register the computer and software in their own names. While students will produce the majority of their work on their own computer, they will also be working in some of Vancouver’s top commercial recording studios. Entry into this program is based on an interview. Students will receive extensive oneon-one instruction and consultation. All instructors are professional musicians and producers from the music industry, chosen for their extensive technical knowledge and industry recognized expertise.

Electronic Music Production Program (part-time) This program is aimed at people who wish to produce their own music. Computer technology has revolutionized the music industry in so many ways, from changing the way that professional studios operate to creating an entirely new genre of home-based music production. Computer programs such as Reason, Cubase, or Ableton Live have made it possible for amateur musicians to compose, produce, mix, master, and publish very high quality music with remarkably little expense. All you need is a good PC or Mac computer, an inexpensive USB keyboard, and the software, which usually costs less than $500 per package. Programs like Propellerhead’s Reason (www.propellerheads.se) allow you to produce original music without the use of conventional instruments. You may create as many mixers, synthesizers, highly complex drum machines, and samplers that play thousands of beautiful acoustic and electronic instrument samples. Reason comes with a complete sampled array of orchestra instruments, loop players, and a mind-boggling collection of effects devices such as reverb, digital delay, vocoders, compressors, and phasers. For those who also want to record original analogue instruments such as an acoustic guitar, piano or vocals, we use programs such as Cubase (www.steinberg.net) along with a USB interface to record your instruments or vocals directly onto Cubase’s sequencer on your computer, and then use programs such as Reason to accompany the track with as many other instruments as you like. This program is also very relevant to people interested in using programs such as Ableton Live for live DJing or creating very complex loop based music. The program is also very useful for interactive media designers who wish to produce sound tracks, sound effects or sound bytes. You do not have to be an experienced musician to make very good use of the courses in this program.

Photography Photography Certificate Program Our Photography Certificate Program is one of the largest, most comprehensive part-time study programs in commercial photography in Canada. It is designed for those interested in pursuing a career in commercial photography, photojournalism, portraiture, or fine art. This program places equal emphasis on applied technical issues, art, and style. Students entering basic level courses in this program do not need any previous training or experience in photography. Students must have their own 35mm film or digital SLR camera and a sturdy tripod. An assortment of lenses is not necessary but is an advantage.

Our instructors represent some of the top individuals in the commercial and fine art fields of photography. These working professionals ensure that students learn the most up-to-date techniques and acquire a realistic perspective of the commercial and fine art photographic industries, including the ethics and politics of the industry. Langara’s facilities include three fully equipped studios, 13 fully-equipped colour and black & white darkrooms, colour and black & white dry-to-dry print processors, a large wet processing area, a large print finishing and mounting room, and two well-equipped Mac labs for digital imagery, two Phase 1 Digital Backs for medium format, and a 4ft Epson 9600 digital printer.

Mandarin Education for Adults For more information, contact Phyllis Liao at 604 323 5624. A full range of courses are offered all year round.

Adult Mandarin courses are offered four times a year, beginning each January, May, July and September. There are 10 weekly classes in the January and September sessions and 8 weekly classes in the May and July sessions. All instructors are fully qualified and experienced.

General Course Information There are ten levels of adult Mandarin courses designed to help students progress from the basic Hanyu Pinyin system to advanced conversational skills. Although functional conversation is the focus of this multi-level course, attention to grammar, reading, writing and listening are also emphasized. Repeating the same level sometimes helps to give students more confidence and practice before moving to a higher level. From Level 6 upwards, the course materials vary from semester to semester in order to cover a wider range of sentence structures and topics. Chinese Written Characters This course is ideal for students who know Hanyu Pinyin but find it difficult to read or write Chinese. Understanding the basic components of Chinese characters and their relationship with sound and sense accelerates a student’s ability to learn the language and expand their vocabulary. Both standard and simplified characters are introduced, together with many common expressions and idioms. Note: Course material included in price.

Languages & ESL Adult Mandarin - Level 2 Designed for students who have mastered Pinyin and some basic conversation with a vocabulary of around 200 ‘’words’’, this level further enhances students’ understanding by explaining sentence structure. In fact, comprehensive and sound grammatical instruction is one of the great merits throughout the entire course.

Adult Mandarin - Level 4 At this level, more Chinese customs and culture are interwoven with the text materials during instruction. Some frequently-used Chinese characters will be taught, etymologically, where possible, to students interested in this unique written language based on ideograms. It can be fun and imaginative.

Adult Mandarin - Level 6 Sentence patterns and grammar are the focus of the course. Students should know Hanyu Pinyin well. The course expands on material covered in previous levels and goes further into details of grammatical rules and common usages. The lessons are accompanied with essay-writing and sentence-making exercises.

Building sustainable communities. At the Talking and Walking Sustainability event hosted by Langara last June, community members gathered to discuss poverty and climate change, two of the greatest threats to building sustainable communities.

Ernie Crey, Senior Policy Advisor to the Sto:lo Tribal Council, spoke about how a Mayan community in the Yucatan broke the cycle of poverty by negotiating with a local financial institution to provide them with credit to grow their business. He also shared a story about the Aboriginal community of Alkali Lake, BC, devastated by alcoholism, who broke the cycle of dependence by taking action to care for their children and to rebuild a sense of community. Bill Hopwood and Adrienne Montani, spoke about the fact that BC has the lowest minimum wage and highest child poverty rate of any Canadian province. Many people cannot find affordable housing and some are living on the streets. An increasing number of people, including wage earners, depend on food banks to get by. Other presenters referred to our dependence on food grown thousands of miles away and on fossil fuels for heat, energy, and transportation. This event reinforced the idea that sustainability is about the well-being of our social, economic, cultural and ecological systems. Or, as Bill Hopwood put it, “sustainability is about living on the planet as if we meant to stay here.” Join us at this year’s Summer School on Building Community from June 13 to 17, 2011. For more information, please see page 121.
