Music 6421: Electroacoustic Composition

Music 6421 is a seminar on the composition of live electroacoustic and computer generated music. The central thread of the course follows the writing of three short study pieces: the first for a live electronics, the second for a soloist with electronics, and the last for orchestra, wind ensemble, or chorus. All three pieces will be written, read, and discussed in class and individually.

Along the way we will examine and discuss works from the electroacoustic music “canon” as well as pieces of student interest, looking at them critically and analytically, teasing out the ideas and techniques that went into their design and performance.
