MUSC 3262 Electroacoustic Music II

3 hours; 3 credits

This course will explore music composition employing techniques of sound synthesis, both analog and digital. First topics include simple oscillators and then progress through others including subtractive synthesis, modulation, granular, and physical modeling. Discussion of techniques will also be related to historical and contemporary creators and their works. Control and compositional use of synthesis techniques will be explored via a series of assignments exploring these concepts, culminating in a major final project.

Prerequisite: Music 3260 or permission of the director.
