The focus of this course is on the composition of a piece for performance on our end-of-semester CECM concert in Auer Hall. Typical projects include work for 8-channel fixed-media, music for acoustic instrument and live electronics, performance on data-driven instruments, and audio-visual composition. In addition to workshopping these compositions, we explore various supporting topics — whatever seems appropriate for the students currently enrolled.
There is one class meeting a week (Th 11:15 – 12:45 in room MC302) and one hour-long private lesson every other week. Prerequisites: K403/503 and K404/504, or equivalent experience.
The course can be taken as 2 or 3 credit hours and is repeatable for multiple semesters. For MM and DM students who have already satisfied requirements for an outside area or doctoral minor in electronic music, there is a way to take the course for 1 credit hour. Email Prof. Gibson for more information.
