MUSC 219
Spring 2023 not offered
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

I am the Loudest Sound in This Room // I am the Softest Sound in This Room (MUSC 219) examines the use of feedback-based systems in performance, composition, and sound art. Particular emphasis will be given to the creation and exploration of recursive systems, starting with Alvin Lucier's seminal work I am Sitting in a Room. The class will overlap with explorations of instrument design, acoustics, orchestration, improvisation, idiosyncratic electronic systems and programming, and performance. Students will be encouraged to create original work as part of the class. The class will use softwares such as Max/MSP, Reaper, and other systems as necessary for the class.
