Creating your own sounds rather than relying on tired sound effect libraries can give your designs a unique aural vocabulary. This course will provide a thorough introduction to the creation and manipulation of synthesized and sampled sounds. We will use a series of software packages to build, analyze, and modify digital audio to create sounds that can feel realistic and/or fantastic.
Students create a 1:00 to 1:30 minute sound composition using only the synthesizer Sculpture. This forces them to develop at least some expertise with a synthesizer and the assignment is designed to require them to delve fairly deeply into its operation. The assignment is also designed to require them to create movement using non-tonal, or at least non-note methods.
