A project-based course covering basic design principles and production techniques used in producing sound for animation. Animation is a part of practically every form of entertainment that uses visual elements, from feature films and television programs to video games and websites. Most, if not all, musicians will work with this medium at some point in their career. Class meetings will explore the historical roots of sound and music for animation through screenings, case studies, and assigned readings. From this, students will develop the skills necessary to analyze an animation and create a variety sound elements: music, sound effects, and vocal elements.
