Spring 2013 - Graduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
This seminar will focus on the discussion of and techniques for the application of linear and non-linear sonification for real and virtual spaces. The seminar will concentrate on defining real world projects and demonstrations of the use of sonification. There will be an effort to create and deploy "use case" scenarios where the efficacy of the use of sonification techniques in research will be tested and evaluated across a wide range of disciplines. The line between the use of sonification techniques for artistic/musical expression and more formal and functional application in the sciences will be examined. The craft of using various techniques to create ways of expanding the state of the art of sonification in creating new sonic structures that have interest, beauty and function will be the focus of the class.
Consent of the Instructor and Advisors is required for enrollment.
