MUSC 103 - Music Technology l

This course offers an integrated study of the creation, history, and aesthetics of electronic and computer musics from around the globe. Topics include acoustics, digital audio recording and synthesis, MIDI, mixing, film scoring, and digital signal processing. Coursework includes the creation of several études and a final creative project, as well as regular reading, written reflections, analysis of pieces, and active participation in class meetings. A willingness to engage openly and seriously with an extremely wide range of creative practices is essential. This course assumes no background in music technology or music theory; but it is designed to offer new insights to those who already possess knowledge in these areas. The emphasis is on imparting a set of flexible skills and a broad familiarity with aesthetic concerns in electronic music, so that students can develop projects that are meaningful to them.
