TECH 170 - Electroacoustic Interpretation and Performance Practice

FC CNDP
4 credits
This course covers four areas of study: (a) a broad survey of electroacoustic music history and basic electroacoustic techniques; (b) learning repertoire for your solo instrument paired with electroacoustic music and developing ways to approach technical and musical challenges for performance; (c) analyzing electroacoustic elements and recognizing idioms that characterize this repertoire; and (d) composing music with a focus on creativity and experimentation using computer music technology and digital audio techniques. Through a hands-on approach, we will explore basic digital audio techniques in electroacoustic music with the aim of cultivating a personal and informed interpretive and performance style. The coursework is designed to deepen your creative, collaborative, and critical approach to performance by integrating work in electroacoustic music history, theory, analysis, score interpretation, aesthetics, composition, and performance.
