This course will focus on the creative use of sound/music through the exploration of technology. Students will be introduced to a variety of digital music effects, tools, and techniques, learning the basics of the production and manipulation of digital audio. A variety of open source programs will be used to spark students imaginations, grow their knowledge base, and develop their skills in working with digital music as they begin their own creative projects.
Specific concepts will include learning the components of digital sound (waveforms, noise, samples), principles of digital editing (cutting, splicing, stretching, and reshaping sounds), common digital signal processes (amplification, compression, equalization, distortion, filters and modulation), and how to create, assemble and develop new works of digital music.
The course will meet in the Digital Music Lab in Rockwell Hall. Students will have access to all the software they need. In addition, all software used in the class is free and downloadable to a student's personal device.
