MUS 220

Music and Technology

An in-depth look at the practical and artistic issues involved in making music with computers. This includes a study of some fundamental concepts and a practical application of these concepts using the resources of the Newell Center for Arts Technology. The course is divided into two broad sections—(1) the MIDI protocol: what it is, how it works and what you can do with it; and (2) digital audio: a brief introduction to acoustics, a study of how audio is recorded and played back digitally and a consideration of the uses of digital signal processing. Prerequisite: Music 100/101, 200/201, or permission of the instructor.
