Credits: 2

"This course will survey electronic tools for composition by tracing the historical development of electronic sound methods from its early experiments to modern-day technology. Discussion of these methods will always be connected to multiple examples of existing compositions and performance-practice that resulted from these new sound-making possibilities. The class will examine the following main topics: creative playback of pre-recorded sound, live-processes to alter and manipulate sound in real-time, as well as simple control instruments for live-performance. There will be an equal mix of sound theory, listening, and hands-on exercises in order to complete small composition assignments. Students will gain introductory experience with digital audio workstations (Reaper, Qlab), coding platforms (MAX/MSP, PureData), and fundamental sound system methods. This course is aimed at performers, composers, improvisers, actors, writers, and any practitioner who uses sound as narrative. Requirements for the course: Personal laptop (Mac or PC) "
