Please join me in welcoming Isaac Halvorson to the IPR Pro Audio Outlet team. An admitted nerd, like most of us, Isaac replaces a tough act to follow (aka Dan Cortez). Isaac is a worthy addition! Stop by and welcome him.
A few facts about our new talent:
- Born and raised in North Dakota
- Moved to Minneapolis to go to IPR in 2008
- Graduated valedictorian October of 2010
- Was on the student advisory board for most of my time at IPR
- Pro Tools certified
- Logic Studio Master certified
- fluent in Ableton Live, Photoshop, and Illustrator
- Stuff I enjoy
- I’m a big nerd, I love learning and talking about computers, technology, and the internet; especially when it somehow relates to music
- movies: I actually almost went to film school before deciding IPR was a better fit. I love watching movies and discussing movies
- music-wise, I really enjoy punk rock, hip-hop, electronic, some metal and jazz, and most of all oldies (as is apparent by my final project, which can be listened to and downloaded from here: http://soundcloud.com/hisaac/gotta-write-a-song-mastered).
- A few months before graduating, I started a record label called Hospice Media (http://hospicemedia.com) with Ryan Terrell, a friend and fellow IPR student of mine.
- Recently, I’ve been recording live shows for friends with my portable 8-channel recorder/mixer, and have enjoyed that very much.
- Immediately after graduation, I was hired on in the Lab office here at IPR. Working overnights was tough, but I eventually made it to the day shift. I had a great time and learned a lot.
