Tuesdays & Thursdays, 11:40am-1:20pm

This course will be taught in person, on campus.

Course Description: This course facilitates this understanding of the forms, functions and effects of the sonic arts through the study of the principles of acoustics, the operation of various audio hardware and software systems, classroom discussions on the personal and cultural dimensions of aural environments, and the production of programs through narratives that are communicated through the medium of sound. Through a reflective process of exploration and analysis, student projects are structured so that there is a simultaneous development of technical skill-sets and production aesthetics that rely heavily on individual “hands-on” activities that reinforce the conceptual and aesthetic development of the many and varied ways sound is created, perceived, manipulated and shaped.
