Hi everyone, below is some course descriptions for classes being offered this summer through the Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media at the University of Washington. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Summer courses in computer music in Seattle, Washington. Summer 2006.
The Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media at the University of Washington in Seattle announces two courses in Computer Music for Summer 2006. Courses are managed through the University of Washington's Summer Programs (see http://www.summer.washington.edu/summer/home.asp
or more information) and award 5 quarter units each. Course enrollment is limited to 20 students. Each course is taught over a four-week intensive term.
DXARTS 598 Summer Term A- Algorithmic sound composition. 5 credits.
Algorithmic Sound Composition will teach students how to use of the program Common Music and the language LISP for algorithmic music composition. Course topics will range from an introduction to the programming language, note by note control of programs, control of large scale processes, and the usage of the language for instrumental and computer music composition. No previous programming experience is required, though previous experience with a synthesis programming language such as Csound, Common Lisp Music (CLM) or Super Collider is suggested.
DXARTS 598 Summer Term B- Interactive Computer Music with the Super Collider Programming Language. 5 credits
Presents a four week intensive course on the Super Collider synthesis programming language. Course material will range from an introduction to the language and basic concepts through advanced topics such the creation of real-time control structures for music, sound art and interactive installations, graphic user interface (GUI) creation and the extension of the program through the construction of classes and Unit Generators.
