Electronics in Music : Compositional Processes
Winter 2017 quarter
From serialism to chance music, musical dice games to change-ringing, musicians have often found methods of creating music that rely on external processes. In this course, students will work extensively with Max/MSP, a visual programming environment, to develop algorithms and generative processes for creating music. Students will learn how musical ideas can be expressed and manipulated using numbers, simple math, and logic. Students entering this course are expected to have some foundation in music and/or music technology, either through the “Introduction to Electronics in Music” courses or equivalent experience. Preference is given to students continuing from the fall quarter of “Electronics in Music.” Please contact the instructor for a course application.
