  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Foundation Supply Kit

The Foundation Supply Kit (download here) is required of all Foundation students. Your Foundation Supply Kit provides many of the items you will use across several studio classes. The list has been compiled for efficiency — to help you buy supplies all at once, and for a preferred price.

Please also see First Day Materials & Supplies for additional items you MUST bring to your first meeting of each class.

The supply kit is available at Graphaids, 3030 S. La Cienega Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232 (310) 204-1212. Monday – Friday 8AM–5:30 PM, Saturday, 9AM–4PM, closed Sunday. For your convenience, Graphaids will be selling the kits on campus on January 9th and 13th, 2014.

The cost of the Supply Kit, including tax, is $300.00. List price for items purchased individually is substantially higher. The kit is priced competitively. In addition, Otis students enjoy a 30% discount on all non-sale items at Graphaids.

The Foundation Supply Kit does not constitute all of the tools, materials and/or supplies you will need throughout the year in Foundation. On an ongoing basis, in each of your classes, various additional materials and supplies will be required.

It is estimated that on a monthly basis, you should plan for approximately $85.00 in expenses related to project requirements in your studios.  Some months may require little or no new expense, while other months will require more than $85.00 in new expenses.

The best practice for maximizing your preparedness for success in studio classes and minimizing your expenses is to plan ahead, share materials and costs with classmates (when appropriate), shop in a group, and shop around for best prices and availability.

Your faculty will expect you to bring all materials and supplies to class when required. Faculty will provide reasonable time and sufficient information for you when assigning any new material and/or supply requirements.

You will also be required to purchase textbooks and course readers for many of your studio courses.  These items will be available online at mbsDirect.net and universityreaders.com after you have registered for classes. You must purchase your textbooks and readers and bring them to the first class session.  The approximate cost for textbooks and readers for first semester studio courses only is $100.  Additional textbooks and supplies will be required by your Liberal Studies courses.
