MUSIC 16AX: Wild Sound Explorers

This course is an interdisciplinary workshop which explores the intersection between music, technology, and the natural sciences. Students will develop an essential understanding of the use of natural sound in art, including its origins, types, manifestations, and aesthetic concerns as they have appeared throughout the Western musical canon and through to our modern era. Working closely with a master composer and field recording artist, students will learn to apply relevant practical skills, theoretical knowledge, and philosophical wisdom in the pursuit of meaningful artistic and academic endeavors.

Through a mixture of lectures, field recording sessions, hands-on training, and reading, writing and listening assignments, students will gain skills in (1) listening to, understanding, analyzing, and discussing natural sound, (2) field recording ¿ including an introduction to portable recording devices and mobile recording techniques, and (3) compositional techniques. Field sessions will take place at nearby locations, ripe with a diverse reservoir of natural sound, including Stanford University's Lake Lagunita and Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. Each student should develop a personal approach to the use of natural sound in art, by making original field recordings from which to creatively respond.
