Intermediate / Advanced Music Technology

Program Description

The Intermediate/Advanced Music Technology program is designed for students who are already actively using music technology software, and who are interested and passionate about the wider world of contemporary software tools and techniques for making electronic music. In addition to DAW-based work, students will also learn introductory audio coding techniques using free audio programming languages, such as Sonic Pi and SuperCollider. Over the course of the program, students will compose a new electronic composition to be presented in concert at the end of the week.
