Software and the sonic subconscious of the digital (OER)

Notebook distorted

Description

In composer Edgàrd Varese's words "music is organized sound". But what else can be organized from sound than music? Pleasant and annoying noises certainly, and perhaps time itself? And what æsthetic, phenomenological and political role do technical media such as software code and algorithms, Spotify, MIDI, and the MP3 play in this work of organization? In this praxis oriented OER we will use synthesizers, recorders and specialized programming languages for sound (p5.sound, Pure Data) to explore and reproduce familiar sonic phenomena of the digital condition.

Goals

This course is a product of the teaching research project "Medienpraxiswissen" (http://medienpraxiswissen.rub.de). As an Open Educational Resource, it serves to make a course from the project accessible to other teachers. The course is designed for media practice teaching. The aim of the course is to familiarise students with the the media, technical, social and economic aspects of (visions of) the metaverse.
