Objectified, Electrified Sound

For a fun, infotainment-style introduction to this course segment, everyone please watch these videos:

This segment of the course is rather broad (unlike the others, obviously). The idea for the segment grew out of the ways in which recording capabilities allow us to work with sound as an object (see musique concrete), as well early and recent experimentations with creating new, electrical musical instruments. You will see that I’ve also included a nod to noise music and algorithmic music. In many ways this segment of the course owes the most to the musical tradition of any that we will look at this semester.

Find at least one of your links from within the links I’ve provided — but do not share the same links your classmates share! Papers from the NIME website, as well as videos from the Georgia Tech competition, are good places to start. Your commentary is especially important for this link since you will not be spending as much time looking for separate examples.
