How can we use computers to create expressive, compelling music? And how can we write computer software to help us create and organize sounds in new ways? This course provides a hands-on introduction to the field of music technology as both a creative musical practice and an interdisciplinary technical research pursuit. Through the exploration of topics such as acoustics, psychoacoustics, digital sound, digital signal processing, audio synthesis, spectral analysis, algorithmic composition, and music information retrieval, we will explore the deep relationships between art and science, between theory and practice, and between experimental and popular electronic music.

We will learn about these topics in the context of digital audio workstation (DAW) software, the multi-track editing paradigm that has been dominant in music production since the 1980s. As we learn about the foundations behind such software, we will use this knowledge to more effectively create music with it, and we will also write a series of short software programs that extend the software’s ability to manipulate, transform, and analyze sound.


Module 1: The Basics of Sound
acoustics, psychoacoustics, timbre, digital representation of sound, spectral representation of sound

Module 2: Digital Audio Workstations
DAW history and key features, music representation, recording and editing audio in a DAW, effects and automations, aesthetic context

Module 3: Working with MIDI
MIDI specification (history, structure, limitations), real and virtual MIDI devices, MIDI sequencing in the DAW

Module 4: Algorithmic Composition
basic Python programming, introduction to EarSketch, key API functions in EarSketch, stochastic composition and randomness, recursion, history and practice of algorithmic composition

Module 5: Analysis, Synthesis, and Signal Processing
music information retrieval and its applications, analyzing audio in EarSketch, audio features, MIR and algorithmic composition, additive synthesis, subtractive synthesis, modulation synthesis, designing synthesizers and effects in EarSketch, historical context

Module 6: Future directions
live coding, machine musicianship, new interfaces for musical expression, mobile music, networked music, sonification
