In this course, students are introduced to a diverse collection of electroacoustic and acousmatic computer music masterpieces. Based on the formal analysis of these works, the student will compose a set of pieces in the following genres: musique concrète, dark ambient, minimal, drone, glitch, sound mass, sound object, soundscape, and sound collage. Through listening, musical analysis, and modeling, each student will come to better understand the creative process for developing uniquely electronic work, and through this, discover and cultivate a more original musical voice.
