MUS 26 Sonic Linearity

Students learn how to design and synthesize sonic experiences in acoustic, analog, and digital media. Examples are drawn from a wide range of music examples from Medieval chant and Tuvan throat singing through twentieth-century and electronic music. Topics include: resonance, partials, harmonics, envelopes, modulation, pitch, timbre, filtering, dissonance, modes, and noise. Students will be assigned weekly reading, listening, and sound synthesis/composition exercises using both open source and commercial music production tools. Tonmeister lab participation required.



Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:ART; WCult:W

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
