Lab fee:


This hands-on course will explore sound composition, editing, and mixing to create soundtracks for video and/or film.

Students who take this course must have a background in music composition and/or sound and video production in order to collaborate on creative video/sound projects. Sound recordings will include music and voice as well as everyday sounds and special sound effects.

The class will incorporate a number of group projects as well as individual exercises to illustrate sound recording and mixing strategies. We will also study sound in relation to video/film through readings and screenings. In addition to class assignments, students will start developing sound tracks for their independent projects. Students will be evaluated on their success in creating compositions, recordings, and mixes for video/film projects, and their ability to bring together moving pictures with a soundtrack to create a whole that is more than the sum of its parts.

Students will also be evaluated on their participation in class discussions and exercises.
