20621 : Electronic Music: External Sensor Use in Real-Time Performanc
Description: This course explores practical applications of external sensing hardware in live and interactive electronic music and interdisciplinary art creation. We will explore topics such as motion detection, gesture mapping, and machine listening in depth through readings, in-class activities, and assigned projects. The class will be taught using the SuperCollider programming language, and motion detection will be achieved using the Kimari MUGIC sensor, developed by violinist and composer Mari Kimura. While completion of MUSI 26817/36817 or other prior experience with SuperCollider will prove helpful, all programming skills necessary for the successful completion of course material will be covered in class sessions and assigned readings.
