LEFTOVER CUTIES

As with any true troubadours, love makes their world go 'round. On the band's shining sophomore album "The Spark and the Fire," love makes the heart sing, soar, ache and burnoften in the same hook.

Leftover Cuties - Shirli McAllen (lead vocals, ukulele), Austin Nicholsen (bass, ukulele, vocals), Mike Bolger (brass, keys, accordion, vocals ) and Stuart Johnson (drums, vocals) - have sparked a fire among fans with a timeless prohibition-era jazz sound, combining sultry vocals, pop-perfect songwriting, and seasoned musicianship. Their spellbinding first album "Places To Go" won raves from critics. Their impeccable and atmospheric live performances draw ever-growing and increasingly passionate crowds in the speakeasies and rock clubs of their hometown Los Angeles. A string of impressive licensing placements has won them fans the world over. Among those big spots: the theme for the Showtime series "The Big C" and an ad for Samsung that aired over and over (and over and over) during the 2012 Olympics and generated more than three million YouTube views. "The title of the album stands for that yearning to hold on to the beginning of things," says McAllen. "The part where everything feels new and pure, where there's excitement and promise of great things to come."

Now it's time for more fans to get to know the band behind all of those songs on TV. Currently at work on their third studio album to follow with a North American and European tours. Leftover Cuties show no signs of slowing down any time soon. From a spark to a fire.

Class: Creating Sound Effects for Games




Learning Goal

Students willLearn various techniques for creating their own videogame sound effects.


Class Description

We all know the importance of audio in games. With great sound effects, a game's world can really come alive. But with poor sound effects, the entire presentation can fall flat. Knowing that, it can still be difficult to find the right sound effects for your game. For an indie developer, the options are using stock sounds from a library, or hiring a sound designer. But with the first option, we run into a risk of having sounds that don't exactly fit your game. The second option is ideal, but can be very costly, especially for developers creating their first games. In this class, composer and sound designer Alyssa Menes will teach students some essential techniques for creating their own sound effects.

This class will provide a great start to both developers looking to learn more about sound design, and for musicians who need to develop sound design skills in order to build their skill set and land more contracts. Students will gain hands-on experience with foley (using every day items to create sounds) and create their own sound effects during the class. In addition, they will learn about the equipment they need to create sounds (at all sorts of different price points), and what software to use in order to equalize and process the sounds so they're ready to be placed into a game.


About the Instructor:


Alyssa Menes is an NJ/NYC-based musician who works as an independent composer/sound designer for videogames. She also performs regularly and teaches private music lessons.

In 2012, Alyssa wrote and recorded the theme song to Joe Walkers retro games show,The Backlog. She began collaborating with the Gamer Symphony Orchestra at the University of Maryland in 2013. Through this collaboration, Alyssa produced arrangements of the music fromKid Icarusand Sam and Max Hit the Road. The Kid Icarus arrangement in particular was praised by the original composer of the music, Hirokazu Tanaka.

Video game credits include Blackwell Epiphany (end credits theme), Hiveswap (Sound Design), and 1000 Years of Bones (Score and Sound Design).
