In this class, students will collaborate to compose and perform original interactive multimedia works that explore and showcase many of the new possibilities created by mobile devices and wireless networks. They will learn to design and program custom performance interfaces for the iPad and use it in a performance, thus demonstrating it to be a clear, direct, powerful, versatile, and truly expressive musical controller. The students will form and perform in unique combinations and explore and define novel symbiotic roles and radically new music-making and sound-producing paradigms. Students taking this class will need to use their own iPad.
