Multitrack Composition is the study of audio technology and its role in changing the art of music composition and production. This three-quarter long sequence is concerned with using modern audio technologies in the creation of best mixing practices. The use of signal processing, tape/computer-based emulations, and the structure of multitrack mixing using traditional studio workflows allow many techniques to be created on the fly to generate, modify, and document musical sound. Multitrack Composition II (winter quarter) will be taught remotely using your personal computer, Pro Tools, Digital Slate plugins, headphones, or speaker monitors. 

 

The course is for musicians, engineers, and producers who want to develop compositional, technical, and collaborative skills using digital-based production systems. Please make sure to send a brief description of your experience to the faculty regarding your skills. If you have any questions, please contact the faculty. 

 

Synchronous meetings:  This class will be taught on Zoom, synchronously on Tuesday’s at 5:30 p.m. for 2 hours a week. An additional 8 hours a week is expected for readings, listening exercises, and software-based assignments. Classes may be recorded for students who are unable to participate in live sessions. Additional learning tutorials will be available online using Linda.com.

 

Requirements : Pro Tools and a computer that meet the system requirements, and Slate Digital with all access plugin pass, and headphones or monitor speakers.
