MUSIC 6509 - Topics in Electronic Arts


Fall or spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Co-meets with MUSIC 4509 .

A. Lucia, T. Cihan.

Spring Topic: Sound & Image: Advanced Projects in Electronic Arts. This cross-listed course allows students to develop a collaborative audio-visual project that investigates the creative applications of technology within the sonic and visual arts. Through theory and practice, a critical study of technology with a focus on two historically opposing concepts, preconceived form and process (formal generative processes), establishes a contemporary basis for an understanding of form and production in sound and image. To this end, this seminar focuses on the consequences of formal processes applied to both sonic and visual data and the subsequent generation of affect. Using technology as a medium, students develop a set of skills for tool-making, probing existing digital or analog technologies beyond their standard functionalities or through the creation of their own hardware or software. Students share their works-in-progress for peer review through regular class presentations and showcase their final projects at a concert and/or exhibition.
