Electroacoustic Music (CMPN1631)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit will explore current techniques in electroacoustic composition. Electronic music composers have been "diffusing" stereo works in surround spaces for many years. This unit of study explores composing for a surround space, and investigates writing multichannel electroacoustic works. Students will discuss recent examples of the electroacoustic repertoire to gain an understanding of current practices, and will gain an insight into the recording process leading to the making of their piece.
