Computer Music Advanced (CMPN2633)


This unit will focus on interactive and generative composition within the digital audio domain and the application of sound synthesis to live electronic music performances in which sound is generated and transformed during the performance rather than pre-recorded. This unit investigates sound generation techniques allowing the composer to create and modify sound with current software applications. Students will explore the means by which sound is produced with computers to extend the creative possibilities of digital signal processing.
