Computer Musicianship introduces students to the tools of digital music production. Students will create original pieces of music using Ableton Live as a toolkit for sequencing MIDI, controlling software instruments, and arranging musical compositions.  

Throughout the quarter, students will learn the craft of the computer musician, developing a foundation in western music concepts as well as digital audio techniques such as sampling, synthesis, and mixing.  

Preference is given to students continuing from “Introduction to Electronics in Music.”  

Students will need access to Zoom and a computer capable of running Ableton Live.  

Synchronous class sessions, via Zoom, will be roughly 1-2 hours per week.  The class will emphasize participation in synchronous sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate due to technology, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
