Emmy award winning and “Game of Thrones” sound designer Paula Fairfield, in town for a Game of Thrones convention, visited Belmont on Thursday, June 29. Fairfield met with College of Science and Mathematics Dean Dr. Thom Spence, Physics Professor Dr. Scott Hawley and Belmont alumni and owner of OmegaLab studio Rob McClain.
Hawley and McClain are part of the ASPIRE Co-op, a research co-op where members of the Nashville community–academics, entrepreneurs, engineers, musicians and enthusiasts– collaborate on innovative projects involving audio, acoustics and engineering. McClain arranged Fairfield’s visit to campus.
Fairfield toured the acoustics research lab in the Janet Ayers Academic Center, Belmont’s audio and film production facilities and the new Gallery of Iconic Guitars museum. The group also visited Dave Warburton, Curb College, who showed the Atmos theater in the Johnson Center, and Ocean Way Studios where director Pat McMakin gave them a tour of the facility.
