This course will focus on digital audio production in a media arts context. Methods of instruction include studio assignments, group critiques, hearing and discussing new and classic works. The class will help students find effective ways to incorporate sound into their work as media artists or designers, and to give them the necessary skills and background to accomplish this effectively. Students will learn audio production in the context of recording, editing, mixing, and basic mastering. These skills are applicable to audio production in areas of sound art, installation, music, video, gaming, and more. Industry standard Digital Audio Workstation packages such as Ableton Live, Adobe Audition, and Max will be complimented by open source software solutions like Audacity and Pure Data.
