Faculty Mentor: Michael Benson


A robust sound design often includes underscoring to accentuate the performance on stage. However, licensing and copyright laws can obstruct the use of prerecorded music in a performance, and original composition can be time consuming and costly.

With dozens of preset musical styles and the ability to create dozens more, AIVA can be used to build and record soundtracks and underscores tailored to a production’s specific aesthetics.
