Timbre in Electroacoustic Music

MUSC 2235 S01 [CRN: 17146]

We will investiage the topic of timbre in electroacoustic music though both analysis and composition. We will study musical compositions in various media (acoustic and electronic) that use timbre in various ways, scholarly writing that looks in more depth at compositional processes involving timbre (such as in Spectral music), and various software programs that can assist in analysis and composition. Students will compose new works for electronics alone, as well as for guest solo performers with interactive electronics to be performed in a public concert. Enrollment limited to 8. Permission required for undergraduates.
