Interactive Sound Art with Electronics

A continuation of MUS 275, Introduction to Electronic Music, this course offers intermediate and advanced instruction in digital sound design for live performance, film, or installation work. Students will continue to develop fluency in the digital audio software applications Logic Pro, Ableton Live, and Max and will develop semester-long projects involving either a live musical performance with  electronics or a site-specific interactive audio installation. In addition to building individual sound projects, students will also have the opportunity to engage with  visiting artists , to read and discuss recent scholarship on multi-media art, and to develop a fundamental understanding of acoustics and critical theories of sound.
