Electronic Music

Thursdays 5:30-6:30

3rd-6th Grade

In this class, we will venture into the world of electronic music! Using a computer program called Pure Data, we will design and build programs that warp, twist, mangle, beautify, destroy and echo sounds recorded using a microphone. We will even make programs that create sounds and rhythms of their own! Along the way we will learn about the origins of audio technology and the history of the sound-manipulation techniques we utilize. Pure Data is a graphical programming language in which users connect modules together with lines on the screen, similar to the way telephone lines were connected on switchboards. Students are encouraged to bring their personal laptop if they have one, though we have a few laptops available for shared use during class. Pure Data is a free, open-source piece of software, so students can use it at home!
