We are slowly expanding our graduate studio and developing
graduate courses. We find new grad students are generally at one
of three levels-
- Had no electronic music to speak of -- for you we offer the
same program we give undergrads (which is equavalent to many
grad programs) with different numbers and higher expectations.
- Had our undergrad courses or something like them -- we have
set up a series of seminars that address advanced composition
tools like Csound and Kyma. You'd use these in projects with
your composition teacher.
- Advanced standing (or after the other courses) -- Music 225
is an introduction to algorithmic composition using the Lisp
language. You'd follow that with independent research.
Our grad studio is well equipped with 2 Apple G3s running Max,
Pro Tools, CuBase and all that, development environments in C
(for Max) and Lisp, a healthy stack of MIDI gear, a 30 track mixing
console, 24 track hard disc recorder, performance interfaces as
Graduate students also have the run of the undergrad labs including
the digital recording studio.
