Synthesizers and Synthesis

Fall 2019

Taught By: Joseph Diebes

Section: A

CRN: 7397

Credits: 4

This course provides a practical overview of synthesis for electronic music and sound art. Our focus will be learning how to use a range of techniques applicable to most software and hardware synthesizers including: subtractive, FM, wavetable, physical modeling, granular and other sample-based methods. We will also cover the necessary sound theory, MIDI sequencing, and mixing knowledge for creating original electronic works. To contextualize this practice, we will listen to a range of historical and contemporary artists, with particular emphasis on aesthetic questions and approaches to listening.
