(FORMERLY: MUSI 322 ELECTRONIC/COMPUTER MUSIC). A study of the operation of various analog and digital synthesizers and the computer in the production of original electronic musical compositions in the studio. A special emphasis will be placed on the development of electronic music and its use with other live and electronic media. It is suggested students have some background in music, recording, computers, or other electronic media. This intermediate studio course will build a vocabulary and a set of techniques to work with electro-acoustic and computer generated music and sound materials. We will wrestle with new (and old) technologies and ideas through creative experiments and exercises, providing a solid grounding in audio editing, sampling, performance practice, analog and digital signal processing, and acoustics. We'll also touch on hardware hacking (circuit bending), sound art, and other alternative practices. Essential studio techniques and foundational information will be introduced and no previous technical or musical experience is necessary for enjoyable participation in the course. Each week hands-on making will be paired with short readings and historical examples that will provide a context for sound of all kinds in contemporary concert and popular music, art practice, film making, ecology, as well as game and interaction design. Lab Fee.
