MA/MST Course Requirements

The following was copied from the course requirements listed in the music section of the Stanford Bulletin, Fall 2009:

[MUSIC 154] 3 units Composition and Performance of Instrumental Music with Electronics
[MUSIC 192A] 3 units Foundations of Sound-Recording Technology
[MUSIC 192B] 3 units Advanced Sound-Recording Technology
[MUSIC 220A] 4 units Fundamentals of Computer-Generated Sound
[MUSIC 220B] 4 units Compositional Algorithms, Psychoacoustics, and Spatial Processing
[MUSIC 220C] 4 units Research Seminar in Computer-Generated Music
[MUSIC 250A] 4 units Human-Computer Interface Theory and Practice
[MUSIC 320] 4 units Introduction to Digital Audio Signal Processing
[MUSIC 420] 3 units Signal Processing Models in Musical Acoustics
[MUSIC 421] 3 units Audio Applications of the Fast Fourier Transform

The above courses comprise 35 of the 45 required units. Therefore, 10 units are available for electives. A further requirement is that at least 6 elective units are graduate level courses.

Required Courses by Quarter and CCRMA Electives to Consider

Fall Quarter

[MUSIC 192A] 3 units Foundations of Sound-Recording Technology
[MUSIC 220A] 4 units Fundamentals of Computer-Generated Sound
[MUSIC 250A] 4 units Human-Computer Interface Theory and Practice
[MUSIC 320] 4 units Introduction to Digital Audio Signal Processing

Fall Quarter CCRMA Electives to Consider

[MUSIC 423] 1 unit Signal Processing Research Seminar, Fridays 3:15-5pm, Knoll 315 (Seminar Room)
Music 319 1 unit Research Seminar on Computational Models of Sound Perception, Th 11-12:30, Knoll 315

There is no room for full course electives in a standard 15-unit quarter, but here are some courses to consider proposing a substitution for with your advisor (e.g., if you have already had the material covered in one of the required courses):

[MUSIC 256A] 1-4 units Software Design and Implementation for Computer Music
[CS 106B] 3-5 units Programming Abstractions
[EE 263] 3 units Introduction to Linear Dynamical Systems

Winter Quarter

[MUSIC 192B] 3 units Advanced Sound-Recording Technology
[MUSIC 220B] 4 units Compositional Algorithms, Psychoacoustics, and Spatial Processing
[MUSIC 420] 3 units Signal Processing Models in Musical Acoustics

Winter Quarter CCRMA Electives to Consider

There are 5 units available in a standard 15-unit load. Note that you can free up more elective units by charting a non-DSP depth track with your advisor. The list of electives below is not exhaustive. Please feel free to add your own choice for others to considerl See the #Links section below for pointers to all available courses.
