Electronic Music Composition Workshop 2010

Posts related to the 2010 Summer Workshop in Electronic Music Composition


We will use this space as a "listening diary" during the workshop "Intellectual Impropriety: electronic music composition". After listening to a piece, write a short text with your comments, impressions, and thoughts about what you heard. Post your text here as a comment under the post of the corresponding piece. On Thursday (August 26, 2010) we will discuss your posts in class.

About the workshop: Intellectual Impropriety: Electronic Music Workshop (Summer 2010) is an exploratory course on the composition of experimental electronic music. Specifically, the goal of this five-day workshop is to give students a basic practical understanding of select tools and techniques for the composition of sample-based electroacoustic music. Sampling will be discussed in its widest possible musical definition (including how it may change the nature of musical creativity and how it relates to politics). The workshop is of an experimental nature: departing from your own musical background, you will be encouraged to creatively question underlying musical assumptions and to explore original (!) ways of composing music through the use of existing music.

Instructor: Bruno Ruviaro (ruviaro@ccrma)
When: August 23-27, 2010 — 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (lunch: 12-1pm)
Where: Knoll 217 (CCRMA Classroom)
