In this course, students will explore methods for using technology as an active collaborator in the creation of music. Students will develop electronic music compositions 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.
To successfully participate in this program, students will need access to a computer (Mac or PC) that fits the minimum system requirements for Ableton Live and Adobe Audition. Students can expect our remote teaching to be around 1.5 hours of synchronous (scheduled) coursework per week. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous participation if conditions require.
