Composing, Performing, and Listening to Experimental Music|
This is a first course in experimental music composition with a focus on live electronic and electroacoustic music. The course uses freeware tools such as SuperCollider 3, Spear, and Audacity to enable students to work from their own computers. The course introduces those aspects of acoustics, psychoacoustics, and audio engineering relevant to composing music, designing interactive electronic instruments, and conceiving self-sustaining sound installations. Course work consists of weekly creative assignments taking the form of both short, original compositions and realizations or transcription of works by others, and two larger compositional projects. The online class session focuses on technical issues, while the extended session allows time for audition and discussion of assignments and relevant compositions from the literature.
