Rachlle Bou Serhal is one of those incredible people once you meet you can’t help but adore and love. In her presentation to AEE students she reveals what she believes is the essence of a good leader in project based environments. She talks about the importance of hearing preservation as she is currently in-depth researching the topic as a Ph. D candidate at the Ecole de Technologie Superieure in Montreal. She showed how to look at Equal Loudness Contours and how they relate to dBA wighting and that we don’t hear all frequencies at the same loudness level. She referenced the Etymotic ER-20‘s as a great selection for the price and great protection for your ears.
Stephen Zajac delivers an excellent presentation on the project he recently built: the Tesla Coil Speaker. The voltage ripping through the air can be seen as the music is playing. He also gives a lot of very useful information about the parameters that are needed to design almost any speaker system.
An impromptu jam session took place in the Engineering Building classroom at MSU. AEE members and friends jammed out together. Check out the footage from the session.

AEE presents Mountains for Clouds at the Dem Hall Ice Arena, Michigan State University
Spring 2012 our AEE event was held at the Dem Hall Ice Arena at MSU. What a great show! It was grand yet intimate, the lights illuminated the music and when I closed my eyes it was easy to fly ~ A special thanks to Rayan B. for doing the sounds in this space. The reverberation in the ice arena is not easy to tune in but once you did, it was absolutely amazing to hear Mountains for Clouds layer their music and fill the space with colorful fields of sound. A shout out to Eirc and the Poobies, to Dj GENES and all our friends.
