At both 200- and 300-level, students will learn skills in music sequencing and an understanding of modern sound creation and programming concepts. Furthermore, participants will understand the application of essential electronic music production concepts and skills. This will result in producing a release ready three-track EP with artwork, a ten minute presentation on a topic of your choice within the field of music production and an accompanying portfolio essay. At 300-level only, pedagogical approaches to electronic music research will be discussed in the form of an extended essay.
The paper is focused on the student's artistic identity as an electronic music producer.
