Industry-standard music software incorporating digital audio and sound design, sampling and sequencing, is introduced in detail. The skills taught will be of use to composers, songwriters, arrangers and those interested in music production.
This paper continues the study of technical and creative skills begun in MUSI 132. Students develop audio recording and mixing skills in a range of recording studio environments, and produce recordings as part of a major collaborative project. The paper also continues the development of live sound skills, with a focus on acoustics and performance environments. These skills are contextualised through the critical exploration of music technologies and practices, with a focus on the nature of music production work in a digital environment.
