Prerequisite: prior programming experience
This lab and project-based course explores how we can physically interact with real-time electronic sound in the prospect of making musical interfaces and instruments. Students learn to use sensors, circuits, embedded computers, communication protocols, sound processing, and digital fabrication. Advanced topics include real-time media, embedded systems for audio, haptics, sound synthesis using physical model analogs, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) theory and practice. Course culminates in musical performance with or exhibition of completed design projects.
There will be assignments every week until week 6 after which students will be able to focus on final projects. Assignments are due the following week on Wednesday before class. Late days are not allowed.
