Description
An exploration of creative coding, sound synthesis and manipulation, generative music, and user interface design, oriented towards the development of new and imaginative software instruments for electronic music-making. We'll learn the basics of visual programming, with an emphasis on creative and artistic uses of code in music-making. We'll think about the affordances and constraints that instruments provide, the ways in instruments condition musical practice, and the distinctive instrumental possibilities offered by computation. The course culminates in individual projects using code to enable live performances of electronic music.
