MUSC 7370X Music Technology for Media

45 hours; 3 credits

This course covers the technical and creative elements necessary to produce audio for media. Through hands-on projects, students will have the opportunity to experiment with sound editing, sound design, foley, adr, mixing, mastering, music editing, music production, audio recording, audio restoration, and syncing music and sound to picture. In some instances students will be given the opportunity to collaborate with peers, which is a crucial skill to attain for working in media. This course also looks at how audio transmission and standards affect our workflow and decisions throughout the post-production process. Through a combination of lectures, practice, and critiques, students will gain the skills to create and edit their own soundtracks, as well as look with a discerning eye and ear at their work and the work of others.
