SOUND SYNTHESIS

Aimed to

Specially aimed to composers, producers and performers interested in knowing or expanding knowledge of sound synthesis, synthesizers, audio processing modules and the most used tools in the new trends of this broad field. For futher information about this and other level courses, visit our FAQ.


Description

The course is designed for electronic artists and acoustic instruments performers that wants to reconsider one of the least worked elements in music, “timbre” and “the effects for the processing of predetermined and generated music in live events”.


Content

How many different ways can my instrument sound?

What does each of them express?

How can we synthesize these sounds?

“How can effects and audio processors be used to modify the sound of musical instruments and events?”

How to put these concepts into practice when playing with other people?

Through this course it is proposed to make an approach to electronic music, in a practical and theoretical way. It will be based on the many personal experiences of Miguel Noya, who has been developing for more than 30 years as a producer, composer and performer.

We will learn to use processors in our different instruments, to get different timbres and at the same time we delve into their synthesis and “also be able to affect the music execution by altering the disposition of the material executed”.

 

Once the working environment of each participant has been developed, we will improvise and compose all of them together. We will work on the different work dynamics from our electronic resources.
