Composing, Performing, and Listening to Experimental Music|
Spring 2012 not offered
This is a first course in experimental music composition with a focus on computer music techniques. It is linked to COMP112, Introduction to Programming. Students are required to take both courses. Students taking MUSC220 will enroll in COMP112 on the first day of classes.
MUSC220 introduces fundamental computer music concepts and how composers have used these concepts to augment traditional musical structures and compositional techniques. COMP112 will introduce the general approach of object-oriented programming and the more specialized abstractions needed to model graphics, sound, and music. Both courses will use SuperCollider 3, an open-source computer music software environment, as their fundamental tool.
The larger goal of this initiative is to introduce those aspects of computational thinking that involve passages between aural, visual, temporal, and mathematical structure. The courses will draw on freely from this literature for motivating examples, rudimentary assignments in programming and sound design, and the creative term projects that are our ultimate goal.
