In this course, vocalists and others who self-produce will develop production skills centered around the voice and the unique ways it is used in contemporary electronic production. The course will serve the needs of vocalists producing their own music as well as those who collaborate with others remotely. Students will survey characteristic electronic pop music repertoire and explore techniques for recording, editing, and creatively manipulating vocal recordings using any DAW. Emphasis will be placed on ways the artist-producer can develop a unique production style that compliments their own musical aesthetics. Students will be encouraged to write, arrange, record, and produce their own music that incorporates vocal elements.
