This course is a study of multitrack mixdown in a digital audio workstation environment, specifically for the needs of modern film and television scoring in a project studio. Balance and context of a mix are explored, and special consideration is given to genre-appropriate sound. In addition to aesthetic and technical concerns, people skills and delivery to specifications (including stem mixes and session interchange between DAWs) are emphasized. Mix material will be drawn from the student's own film scoring projects from other courses, and/or film scoring sessions from other composers.
