This unit introduces students to the development and practice of electroacoustic instrument building and performance throughout the 20th Century. The unit will cover key developments in the theory and practice of electroacoustic music and provides a basis for understanding and exploring the application of these ideas. Students will learn to construct electroacoustic instruments and exploit the latent sonic possibilities of consumer electronics and acoustic environments. Students will then apply this knowledge in the creation or performance of live, recorded or installation works.
