Digital Music Production

A creative course within an intensive hands-on environment, it serves as an introduction to concepts and methods in the intersection of music and technology. Students will work on a series of creative projects utilizing a range of techniques, with a focus on artistic applications of a digital audio workstation. The students’ creative work will be informed by a basic introduction to the fundamental theoretical context (acoustics, digital and analog audio, MIDI), as well as analytical listening, discussion, and peers’ feedback and collaboration. Topics will include digital audio, signal processing, live electronics, and basic recording techniques, including sessions at the music department’s professional recording studio. With an openness towards any form of personal musical expression, unbounded by genre or style, this course is designed to encourage experimentation and exploration, aesthetically as well as technologically. This course is open to any interested student and welcomes a diversity of backgrounds and levels of experience; no previous musical experience, digital or otherwise, is required. 1 unit.
