Transformative Voice (MCO4117.01)

Sergei Tcherepnin

In this class, students will use their voices to create stylistically diverse sonic compositions, from sound collages to pop songs. The focus will be on learning a variety of techniques on how to transform the human voice with electronics. We will cover vocoders, ring modulators, delays, autotune, harmonizers and pitch shifters. A series of composition assignments will frame the class, each designed to demonstrate a special aspect of vocal processing. Students will propose a final composition project at the midterm, to be presented at the end of the class in an in-class concert
