Music Technology III

MUS- N 410 / 3 Cr.

This course is an advanced study of music and arts technology through the exploration and understanding of new interfaces and instruments. Students must have familiarity with concepts of graphic programming, DAWs, and live musical performance software, which will be employed heavily throughout this course. Through this course students will develop a practical understanding of digital signal processing, experimental hardware interfaces, professional web design, electronic portfolios and resumes. In addition, this course will prepare students to develop a proposal for experimental applications in selected technology areas, such as the final capstone project for the BSMT degree. Topics include multimedia software development, real-time video processing, mobile interface design, integration of audio and video in a single system, custom stage lighting, experimental hardware and controller development.

  • Think, speak and write clearly and effectively about major concepts of experimental multimedia development; (PUL1; NASM 1)
  • Understand fundamental techniques used in video processing and hardware design (DSP); (PUL 1e, NASM 17)
  • Research professional proposals and portfolios; (PUL 5a, b, and c, 6, NASM 3)
  • Expand a knowledge of modern music and art technology to an expert understanding. (PUL 1e, NASM 18)
