MUS 25 Introduction to Sonic Arts
This course provides an introduction to the study of music with sound technology, using notable examples in music, sound art, intermedia, and installation. Starting with the birth of electricity, Futurism, and Dada, students will examine the practices and innovations that led to the most current ideas about Sonic Art, and from here develop analytical methods for exploring music of more distant times and places. Students will be expected to develop a rounded 21st-century musicianship through the weekly Tonmeister labs, and the culmination of this course will be the creation of a basic original sonic arts composition using the technique and aesthetic principles learned throughout the course.
