Music Theory and Composition Independent Study

Posted by Caroline Lanni on December 22, 2022 at 11:00 AM
This past semester, Humanities Professor Amy McGlothlin assisted senior Ryan Gallagher with an independent study for his Music Theory and Composition minor.
According to McGlothlin, "The project was an album release.  Ryan has released several individual songs over the past few years, but never an entire album.  We worked on the concept for his album, which songs belonged on it, and which ones he should save for the next project. Then we picked a release date for the album. Ryan worked on mixing and mastering his music using skills he learned in my Introduction to Music Technology courses, as well as on his own. He created his own merchandise, and worked on getting his music into the distribution pipeline for the release date.  He organized people to help him with the show, including people to run the merchandise table where he sold T-shirts with his logo on them, arranging for catering to bring pizza for anyone who attended and arranging for someone to record the show on video. He designed the poster, and did the advertising. We met or talked about his project every couple of weeks to be sure he was on track and to give him some ideas.  I invited local music producer Young Coff33, who came to the show with his production company and talked to Ryan afterwards, giving him lots of praise for the quality of his work. It was pretty much a full house in the Falcon Hub that night, which goes to show that Ryan did a great job with spreading the word, and also shows what a great group of friends he has that came to support his presentation.
 
"The show lasted about 45 minutes. Ryan talked about each song before performing it. I assisted with running the sound for his background tracks, all of which he wrote the music for.  I'm really proud of Ryan and his work on this project which pulls together a number of skill sets that young musicians must now have to get started on a career."
