Subject Area: Music

This course provides an introduction to sound technology and its creative applications. Students will evaluate a range of conceptual, stylistic and aesthetic approaches to sound-making, including the concept of soundscape, and the relationship between sound and film.

Students will gain foundational technical skills in audio technology, from portable digital recording through to sequencing, sampling, mixing, editing and post-production within the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). Projects are structured around creative applications of these technologies. The course fosters and encourages collaborations between Screen and Sound Production and Sonic Arts/Music students.
