Musical Instruments: Design, Build, Play
Winter 2015 quarter
In accompaniment to the study of musical sound, participants will construct a series of simple musical instruments that incorporate a vibrating membrane, vibrating string(s), or column of air. These unique soundings will present further exploration of scales/tunings, electrification, composition and more. We will practice playing our instruments together with help from a guest artist. No previous experience (musical or otherwise) is required, and all levels (especially musical) are welcome. Required text: Musical Instrument Design by Bart Hopkin.
