Fields of Study

This year-long series of courses is intended for the musician interested in exploring compositional experimentation with analog and digital synthesis technology and computer applications.  In fall, the course will focus on analog synthesis techniques, studio production, and the creation of musical pieces with a focus on new options presented by this compositional environment.  Winter will focus on building pieces from techniques of synthesis introduced in fall quarter and learning new digital synthesis techniques, different controllers and sequencers, signal processing, and surround 5.1 production skills.  Techniques will include use of percussion controllers, synthesizer voice editing, sample based applications, and plug-in signal processing.  In spring, students will develop pieces based on design problems using combinations of computer-based and analog resources covered in prior quarters.  New material will include acoustic/electronic sound source integration, mastering techniques, object-oriented voice construction, and advanced production methods.  Each quarter, students will complete projects, attend weekly seminar/lecture/critique sessions, use weekly studio times, and maintain production journals.
