  • Media Studies
This is an introductory course in audio production. It explores creative possibilities of emerging techniques of audio production with current technologies, while covering underlying principles of recording and production that have grown to define the field over the past century. Universal principles of acoustics, how sound works, will be studied alongside production skills to provide for background knowledge appropriate to our ever-evolving technological media environments – be they in music or radio, sound art or games, sonic architecture or film. Instruction centers on the use of professional-quality tools and techniques for recording, editing, mixing, and sound creation and will start with technical aspects of sound and acoustics and move quickly toward its application in real-world situations. Working in the field and recording studio, students will create individual projects using digital audio recorders and Pro Tools workstations. Examples of sound work will be examined as an aid to understanding conceptual frameworks and production technique. Media Practices: Audio Production is a level one production course.
