Making Music with Modular Soft Synths (MCO4124.01)

Sergei Tcherepnin

This class will focus on historical methods of electronic music composition through a contemporary lens. We will study synthesis in depth, and the development of early analog synthesizers, while learning how these techniques have influenced contemporary software design. While the class will focus on composing, students will be expected to learn how to use Reaktor, VCV Rack, and Madrona Labs software. We will have weekly critiques of works-in-progress, and the class will culminate in a concert of student compositions at the end of the semester.
