Course Description

Electronic Music explores how advancements in technology give rise to musical styles, such as techno, hip-hop, progressive rock, industrial, and synthpop. Students gain an understanding of the most influential works of electronic music through guided listening, video screenings, selected readings, class discussions, and creative assignments. Each class focuses on a specific invention that inspired new musical ideas and how those ideas impacted popular culture.

Afternoon workshop sessions are devoted to students experimenting with these ideas by creating original electronic music in Brown’s Multimedia Lab. Students get hands-on instruction with several popular software programs. No prior knowledge of music or music software is required.
