Music was in the air and on the airwaves on Wednesday, May 15 when LBCC’s soundwave mixer took place.
The G Building was the venue for the music-focused event. Soundwave was simulcast on ustream, LBCC’s I.E. News and LBCC radio stations KCTY and KCLB for six hours of live music.
Showcasing a range of Southern California audio talents, the event had a wide range of artists and interests.
Bands and solo acts like Small Affair,” UV Fortson, Jennifer Corday, The Dovelles, Chad Bishop and Chowdy were heard. Excerpts from the “TED Talks” were also broadcast.
Soundwave was the big Spring event for LBCC’s TV and radio program. College Radio Day, which is a national event, is presented every Fall. The Spring mixer changes every year.
Soundwave was created and produced by a community effort of the participants in the Radio and TV program. Any interested volunteers were also welcomed.
The soundwave mixer was promoted on LBCC’s radio broadcasts.
Interest was also generated by word-of-mouth. Participating bands also made sure to raise awareness of the event and their performances.
The event was co-hosted by LBCC students Bianca Palmer, 23, a nursing major, and Liz Waite, 20.
In an email, Palmer said, “It was an amazing experience. And a great way to end the semester. And I hope to get the opportunity to do it again.”
