New and evolving technologies provide unprecedented creative opportunities for musical composition/production and performance/reproduction. This course surveys the field of music technology from historical, philosophical, and hands-on practical perspectives. Topics include the physics of sound and the technology of acoustic instruments; case studies on compositional techniques such as musique concrete and electronic synthesis; studio mixing, recording and production techniques; and digital sampling and editing software. All of these topics are framed in a broader understanding of music technology as both concept and construct.
