Ciao!

Hi guys,

My name is Lisa and I’m currently a 4th year architecture student. Besides just wanting to take a fun class to get me out of the architecture building, I’ve secretly always wanted to create music, so I guess this is my chance to do that! My only musical background is playing the piano and taking 1 guitar lesson when I was 13.  I love Soundcloud; some of my favorites include Flume, Snakehips, and Tokimonsta. I also love jamming to gangster rap music.

about me

Hi everyone,

My name is Kwang Woo, a senior HBHS major minoring in Gerontology. I’m a violinist and a pianist  interested in composing. For the past three years, I have been involved with Therapy Thru Music(TTM), a student organization that brings music to the residents of various nursing homes. If anyone is interested in playing music for the elderly, please let me know. I’m looking forward to working with other musicians in this class.

About Adam

Hey everyone,

My name is Adam, and I am a senior in Information Science, also working on the music minor. I am a vocalist and a percussionist, but I love to dabble in composition and arranging. I also enjoy beatboxing and candlelit dinners, often at the same time. I sang with the Glee Club and the Hangovers here at Cornell for the past 7 semesters, and I would like to encourage any singers in the class to audition for any of the choral ensembles this semester.

I would love to work with anyone interested in rhythm-oriented, dubstep-style music. I am good with computers and I have a decent ear.

about Mary

Hi everyone, I’m a senior in Environmental Engineering, and I joined this class as an outlet for my creative musical energy. I played classical piano growing up, but for the last couple years have been focusing on singing and making my first album with my band, The Mimis. Check it out if you’re interested:

I really want to start making solo electronic music, incorporating my voice, and am particularly keen to learn Ableton Live. I also enjoy collaborating with other artists, so I’m excited to meet some cool musicians through this class!

About myself

Hello everyone. My name is Suk Hyun, (you can just call me Ryan), a junior in Engineering Physics. I’ve always loved music. I play both Western and Eastern instruments, and I’m the musical director of Shimtah, Cornell’s traditional Koraen drumming group. I am so excited for this opportunity to learn computer music and I’ll look forward working with you guys.

About myself

Hey everyone!

A little late to the game but I just wanted to say that I’m really excited to work with you guys.  I have loved music for a very long time and have played alto sax and guitar for over 7 years. In addition to playing music I also like to think I’m a very good listener.  I have recently been exploring audiophile quality headphones for the past 4 years and have acquired some awesome equipment. I love all types of music and hope to create some awesome cross genre mixes!

Oh hello there!

Hi!

My name is Nick Livezey, and I am a senior chemistry major with a minor in physics.  As for my previous experience in music, I was taught how to play piano for a few years as a middle school-er, but i have lost much of that ability.  I am taking this class because I have had an interest in electronic music since senior year of high school and have been closely following the popularization of ‘EDM’ through both the mainstream artists and a few more underground artists ever since.  Additionally I am an active participant in CCC (cornell concert commission) so i have very minimal exposure to the technical side of production.  I am very excited to take this course as i expect it to be quite fun and fulfilling.

Hey All

Hey everyone. My name is Chad Lazar. I am a senior in Applied Economics and Management, concentrating in entrepreneurship, and getting a minor in music. I play saxophone and clarinet, and take private lessons here with a clarinet instructor. I have very little experience with electronic music, but was interested in learning more about it. Most of my musical focus has been on music theory and jazz, and this class seemed like a great way to expand into another genre of music. I also am very much looking forward to the composition portion of this course.

Hello

My name is Brendan Sanok and I’m a senior majoring in Communication. While I listen to a lot of electronic music, I don’t have a whole lot of experience in making electronic music. I attempted to learn how to use Ableton Live over the summer and made some pretty terrible Burial and Actress rip offs, but wouldn’t say they’re worth checking out. That being said, I enjoy a wide range of electronic styles, with some of my favorites being ambient electronic, footwork, UK garage/grime, and sample based hip hop production/plunderphonics. I’m also pretty decent at playing guitar and I’m open to any collaborations, if they arise. Overall, I’m really looking forward to this class and learning more about producing electronic music.

A little about me

Hi all,

My name is Laura – I’m a senior in the ILR school, also pursuing a minor in business. I’m taking this class out of pure interest, my only background in music is 6 years of piano from 1st to 6th grade. My passion for electronic music started in 12th grade, when one of the classic town stoners showed me the Sub Focus remix of “Hold On” by Rusko. Senior year my itunes library was a bizarre mash of indie pop, pop, and heavy dubstep. I’m surprised I did so well on my AP tests considering I was studying for them while listening to Excision and Datsik, 12th planet, and Skrillex.

Since coming to college my tastes have progressed through the entire spectrum of electronic music, and right now Trance is my favorite genre (anyone else coming to ABGT 100?). For about a year and a half, I was writing for Camelback Music, a music blog that had about 20,000 followers at the time. I wrote a series of workout playlists, and covered new releases and concerts. I have been teaching spinning classes at the Cornell Fitness centers since the beginning of sophomore year, and my goal in these classes is to bring my participants brand new music across the entire electronic spectrum. Sharing new music with people is one of my favorite things to do, so here’s what I’m listening to now:

Polygon Dust – Porter Robinson feat. Lemaitre: This is my favorite track off of his new album Worlds. 

Real Love – Rootkit: I just love the sound quality of the melody line – it’s an effect that is signature to Rootkit.

As far as the class goes – I love to work in groups, and am open to collaborating. I would particularly love to work with anyone who can play an instrument.
