Electroacoustic Composition Workshop

 Electroacoustic Composition Workshop

The two-week Electroacoustic Composition Workshop (ECWS), under the direction of Justin Casinghino, will serve as a platform for students to dive into the world of fixed media and interactive electronic music.

This introductory level course in electronic music will consist of interactive classes, private lessons, and scheduled personal work time with the electronic music studio equipment and will explore the philosophy, history, and compositional procedure behind various genres of electronic music. Students will also receive individual feedback from the director, their peers, and in guest artist master classes. As a final project, students will compose a multi-channel fixed media work, and the workshop will culminate in a concert-exhibition featuring a surround-sound presentation of these final projects. Course topics to include:

Audio and recording manipulation
Surround sound mixing
Experimentation with digital instruments
DAW platforms
Understanding the nature of sound
Creating and composing with computer manipulated sound
Recording and microphone techniques
Studio and live diffusion mixing techniques
Aesthetics in electronic music
Historically important works in the genre
2 hours of transferable Boston University course credit

Admitted students will be required to bring a personal laptop computer for working time and to complete assignments. Compositional techniques will be taught from a multi-platform bias, allowing students to continue work regardless of individual system types. Primary studio software includes Logic Pro and Max/MSP.
