Electronic Music Production ONLINE

This course will assist students to develop skills in using technology that will enhance and inspire their composing and develop their live electronic music skills.

Students will learn how to create electronic music projects that can be applied to various software such as Reaper, Max/Msp, Logic, Studio One, Ableton and VCV Rack for sound design and sequencing.

The course is designed to be non-DAW specific so students can use their own software or follow along with the free option (Reaper) presented in the classes. There will be an opportunity to explore the creative possibilities of music technology by realising their own works.

proficiency with software used for music production, editing and mixing and the ability to transfer the knowledge gained to other platforms
