This subject covers basic studio use and, specifically, the analog recording of audio with microphones and the digital manipulation of that audio on computer. Students will develop a critical awareness of sounds and how they may be combined, treated and sculpted in creative ways. Topics covered include the historical development of electro-acoustic music and a study of relevant techniques including musique concrète, sound recording, digital processing and mixing.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of the subject, students should be able to:
- critically analyse isolated sounds and identify their features;
- evaluate the historical development of electro-acoustic music;
- demonstrate problem-solving skills in digital and analog studio configurations;
- create a digital stereo work (in CD-A format) from original analog sources.
On completion of the subject, students should have:
- the ability to analyse sound;
- the ability to work in complex studio environments;
- the ability to problem-solve using a logical framework.
