What is the relationship between technology and musical aesthetics? Since antiquity, composers have incorporated new tools to create unique and original artworks. This course will explore the interaction between sound, art, and technology in the recent past. Starting with the birth of electricity, Futurism, and Dada, students will examine the practices and innovations that led to the most current ideas about sound art and music technology, and from here develop contemporary analytical methods for exploring and creating music. Students will be assigned weekly reading, listening, and sound composition exercises, using commercial production tools.
