Electronics in Music : Collaborating With Machines

We are aware of missing faculty photos in the directory and catalog and will be updating them shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Fall 2018 quarter

Taught by

music technology and theory

In this course, students will explore methods for using technology as an active collaborator in the creation of music.  Students will develop compositions in the music technology labs while diving deep into modular synthesis, MIDI programming, creative mixing techniques and other topics.  We’ll take our conceptual and technical cues from pioneering electroacoustic composers and experimenters such as Pauline Oliveros, Brian Eno, Morton Subotnick, Laurie Spiegel, and others.  Students entering this course are expected to have some foundation in music technology, either through the “Introduction to Electronics in Music” courses or through equivalent experience.  Please contact the faculty for a course application.
