Mold lurks in Dye walls Forensics team wins

Leaks in the Dye Learning
Center have allowed mold to grow
in the walls and caused Cyndi
Andrews, director of the Learn­
ing Resource Center, to move to
Barlow hall due to illness.
The Dye Learning Center is
where the library and video areas
are located. Last summer the
Plant Services first heard about
the problem. People were smell­
ing something in the offices on the
west side of the building, by the
road. “We did the things we usu­
ally do and it didn’t get better,”
said Kirk Pearson, grounds and
maintenance manager.
“We brought the architects
that designed the building and the
general and sub-contractors in,”
said Pearson. “We realized that
we had a moisture problem in the
wall, creating the condition that
would allow it to grow in there.”
However, Pearson also says,
“Exactly where the water is get­
ting in, we do not know at this
point.”
Cyndi Andrews is so far the
only person to get sick because of
the mold, After she had a severe
allergic reaction to the mold, her
physician advised her to move out
of her office until the repairs were
finished. She moved out in Sep­
tember.
“I hope to be moving back
at the beginning of next term,”
Andrews said. “I want to go
home. I want to be with my
people.”
The smell isn’t there every
day, Pearson said.
“It depends on the weather.
If we have a lot of moisture in the
air or rain, you start smelling it
again.”
Pearson did say that when
they were first looking for the
problem, they could see a little bit
of it. While the mold isn’t vis­
ible in the building, the workers
could see it when they tore down
the wall.
“It looked like a black slimy
sort of mildew. It wasn’t like
when you open your fridge and
you have green stuff growing
out... It wasn’t anything like
that,” Pearson said.
Pearson said that the caulk­
ing around the windows and an
expansion joint that failed, allow­
ing the water to seep in. How­
ever, they do not currently know
the exact location of the leaks.
The original general contrac­
tor, Cole Construction, and sub­
contractors have agreed to take
responsibility for the problems
and make the repairs. Cole Con­
struction also built the Gregory

the MIDI keyboarding lab located in Randall Hall.

Editor-in-Chief
Students involved in writing
and playing music now have bet­
ter tools to do so thanks to a re­
cently updated laboratory on
campus.
Twelve keyboard stations are
now available for use in classes
covering everything from the ba­
sics of music writing to profes­
sional level composition. The lab,
now located in the music depart­
ment of Randall Hall, made the
move from Streeter at the begin­
ning of this year. With the help
of grants, a budget for an upgrade
to new equipment was also ar­
ranged.
The new work stations use
the standard for computer music
writing called MIDI, the Musical
Instrument Digital Interface.
With the help of a computer, the
sounds of musical instruments are
synthesized and played over head­
phones or speakers. Each work­
station can function simply as a
full-sized piano keyboard, or it
can be used in conjunction with
the computer to perform compli­
cated tasks.
Other upgrades include mid­
range and high-end programs that
assist the students in writing mu­
sic. One of these is Finale, a MIDI
sequencing and music notation
program.
“We’re the only Oregon
school that requires knowledge in
Finale. This prepares them for
larger schools,” said Music In­
structor Janet Martin.
Another similar program is
Vision. According to Martin,
Vision is a very common tool used
in the professional field of record­
ing studios and advertising.
The programs help students
in several ways. The technology
allows playback of pre-made mu­
sical pieces as well as accompa­
niment. On the computer, an on­
screen sound mixer lets the stu­
dents control the volume and
tempo of the accompaniment.
The computer can record what the
student plays and play it back for
review. Music writing skills can
be practiced through on-screen
notation. These can then be
printed out and read by other
musicians.
But Martin also stressed that
the classes offered are not only for
the student planning to make a
career in music.
“Anyone who walks in the
door for a non-major basic class
will have the opportunity to use
the MIDI equipment. These
classes are also for people who
want to make music as a hobby,”
added Martin.
Currently there are four
classes that use the lab. Plans for
additional keyboarding classes are
being considered.
