Michael Santucci lectures to Recording Arts students at kick-off event hosted by Flashpoint Academy and AES Student Chapter...

Michael Santucci, President and owner of Sensaphonics, Inc. lectured to all first-year students of the Recording Arts Department at Flashpoint Academy this past Thursday October 22. The event not only served as an excellent supplement to the foundational courses RA students are currently taking in the department, but also acted as a kick-off for the guest lecture series hosted by the newly formed Audio Engineering Society Student Chapter at the school. Michael lectured on hearing conservation, in-ear monitors, and the need for an overall awareness of living in an culture that more and more includes "personal listening devices" played back at dangerously loud sound pressure levels. During the demonstration portion of his lecture, Michael took ear canal impressions of Academic Dean Paula Froehle, which will become custom-molded ear plugs. Kudos to all the officers of the AES Student Chapter for hosting a great first event.
