Georgia Tech School of Music professor Jason Freeman will teach a unique online introductory music technology course through Coursera. This free, non-credit six-week course approaches music technology as both a creative practice and a technical pursuit.
Modeled after the School of Music’s popular undergraduate music technology survey course, students explore topics such as acoustics, psychoacoustics, digital sound, digital signal processing, audio synthesis, spectral analysis, algorithmic composition, and music information retrieval, as well as the deep relationships between art and science, between theory and practice, and between experimental and popular electronic music. The hands-on format introduces students to creating music with the same digital audio workstation software paradigms used in professional studios as well as to writing simple computer programs in the Python programming language to manipulate, transform, and remix music.
No prior experience is required.
The course begins on October 6th, 2014.
