How do you compose when any sound can be used in music? This course provides a wide-ranging exploration into strategies for sound-based composition and the digital transformation of sound. Students will create original sounds and compositions in the electronic music studio. Students are expected to complete short readings, participate in discussions, present their creative work on a regular basis in class sessions and complete two studio projects. The afternoon lab session will cover digital audio recording, digital signal processing, and compositional practice in the electronic music studio.
