Sound Art + New Media

Course No. HCS 411  Credits: 3.0

A course on how visual artists (and some composers) use sound in their works. Works discussed in class will include "stand alone" works of sound art, musique concrete, sound sculptures, installation works (using sound as a main component), radio art, film, and internet-based works. Students will be expected to identify differing qualities of sound, and there will be regular listening and reading assignments for each class. Students will also be given written assignments, and will have to compose a work of sound art or sound sculpture as a final project. May be applied as Visual Culture Emphasis course.
