Sound Production
MUSC 227
Fall 2023
Section: 01  

Presenting art conceived as sound goes far beyond setting up a pair of speakers. With the immersive potential of new audio technologies, artists are empowered to think outside the box and create unique super-systems to express themselves. These endless possibilities can be immensely exciting or potentially overwhelming, depending on how much an artist is able to internalize where art and technology overlap. This course will prepare creative thinkers to incorporate audio into their work by establishing a fundamental understanding of modern speaker/transducer designs and configurations, FOH mixers and large-scale audio routing/processing technologies, control interfaces/protocols for producing and interacting with sound, basic room acoustics and strategies on maximizing the potential of a space, and methods of incorporating microphones/live audio into a project. By the end of this course, students will have the tools they need to set up and manage unique and complex audio systems, and better realize their relationship between art and technology.
