This course provides the student with an overview of ways sampling is used in current electronic music production. Students will learn techniques for sampled instrument design, beat sampling, slicing, and sound design, with an emphasis on original, exotic sound textures and unusual synthetic instrumental timbres derived from acoustic sounds recorded from studio and field sources. Many of the editing and digital signal processing skills covered in the course apply directly to electronic music production and techniques used by leading game and film sound designers.
