This course offers the student a comprehensive survey of sound synthesis, sampling and loop creation techniques available to the electronic performer. Students will develop foundational knowledge of sound synthesis as well as practical skills that can be immediately applied to their performance practice using the powerful instruments and effects available in Ableton Live. The course will also explore ways that realtime control gestures interact with electronic instruments and effects. Projects will emphasize developing a student’s unique sonic voice as a live performer.
