About Me

Hi,

I’ve been really excited about this course since I first learned it was available at Cornell. I am a freshman and music production is something I seriously wish to pursue. I play piano, a little guitar, and I sing. My favorite thing to do on the piano is to improvise and create a new sounds each time I play. I’ve created a few short songs on Garageband but I hope I can learn far more in this course.

I look forward to meeting you all,

Scott Rodeo

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.
