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 the use of modern recording technologies as instrument. The use of signal processing, tape/computer based manipulation, and the structure of multitrack recorders and audio consoles allow a great number of techniques to be created on the fly to generate, modify, and document musical sound. Multitrack Composition III (Spring quarter) will be spent recording personal and group compositions and learning advanced production and post production techniques.
The course is for musicians and engineers who want to develop compositional, technical and collaborative skills in modern production. This is a lab course with limited (20) positions available. Please make sure you complete an application and speak with the faculty regarding your skills. If you have any questions, please contact the faculty.
