This course will introduce students to the process and tools of modern recording and sound/music production. This three-quarter sequence begins with the study of microphones, portable recorders, and mono/stereo editing. Continued digital mixing using multitrack software will be a focus in the 3rd sequence of this course. Final projects will consist of collaborative production pieces that are completed remotely. Classes will consist of lectures, demonstrations, discussions, and listening exercises and students will complete weekly project assignments. Students are encouraged to work on personal projects using the learned accumulative skillsets of the prior quarters.
