MTI Seminar 1
This course provides a forum for the exploration of innovation and the integration of technology in modern music production. In this course, students learn a thematic and practical exploration of research and innovation in music, arts, and technology. They also develop artistic and technical communication skills and practice collaboration. Students explore relevant brain science and effective approaches to exploration, idea generation, evaluation, and implementation, with an eye towards adapting the most applicable practices to their field of specialization. Common characteristics and practices of trailblazing individuals will be considered, and students will prepare media-rich presentations about their favorites. This course will also function as a forum to integrate the skills and techniques students are learning in their other courses, as well as helping students focus and define their culminating experience thesis projects. The final project in the course will be a detailed definition and action plan for each student’s culminating experience.
