Foundations of Digital Music will provide students with a broad understanding of the theoretical concepts of digital music. The unit includes a historical overview in the development of sound-based composition and creativity from its initial beginnings with the advent of sound recording through to the emergence of computer-based applications to create and organise sounds in time and space. The unit will focus on the approaches taken over the last century to record, transform and organise sound in a variety of creative contexts, ranging from early electroacoustic music experiments, through to contemporary electronic music production. Repertoire from the vast field of sonic arts will be covered to offer a new perspective on audio and sound production in today's contemporary music scene.
