Introduction to Electronic Music I, II, III
Fall 2013, Winter 2014 and Spring 2014 quarters
In this year long sequence, students will explore the creative use of the music technology labs. Original compositions will be the primary goal of the course work, with clear technical learning objectives for each assignment. Reading and listening will provide a historical and theoretical context for the creative work.
Fall quarter will focus on the operation of mixers, tape machines, and analog synthesizers, looking to the work of early electroacoustic composers for inspiration. In the winter, students will begin working with the computer as a compositional tool, creating sound collages and compositions using MIDI to control hardware and software instruments. The spring quarter will focus on electronic music in performance and the development of independent projects.
