This course gives the opportunity to students to learn how to process and organise sounds in the digital environment throughout various sonic experimentation strategies for interactive music performances/installations/compositions. It also introduces digitising and fundamentals of digital audio with very practical and everyday branch of acoustics. Within the digital sound synthesis concept, the course explores several related topics; computer music basics (sampling and additive synthesis, multiple wave table, granular synthesis, subtractive synthesis), mapping strategies, the spatial sound and music, digital instrument design. Sound and Music Interaction course is a project-based course. At the end of the course, students will submit and present their projects.
