This course will introduce students to the creative use of music technology from the perspective of the composer. Students will create original compositions while developing the foundational technical skills of the electronic music composer. We'll contextualize our creative work by looking to early pioneers and experimenters of electronic music. Students will develop proficiency with audio sampling, loops, editing, effects and mixing. If conditions allow, students will work in the Music Technology Labs, focusing on analog technologies such as tape machines, mixing boards, and patch bays. No musical or technical experience is required.
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 (in person or remote) participation if conditions require.
