Course Title
Making Sound & Music for Media

Description of Course:

"Making Sound and Music for Media" This course examines what is needed to "make" ... There is a cultural phenomenon in today's society that is referred to as "Makers". This includes anything from 3d printing to designing your own interactive media project. There are "Maker" fairs that are happening across the nation. This class is an opportunity to work in this sort of context. To focus on the skills and craft of making music. This can mean many things, but it mostly means focusing on creating a vision of something interesting that one would like to include in a final graduate portfolio that uses sound and putting together the resources and skills needed to MAKE that project happen. From the first class we will work together to understand what is needed to create new work in an audio context, then working in teams and on their own, students will pool those resources to MAKE new sounds, new music, ... new work.
