1 Session, 3 hours, with personalized post-session project with instructor via email.
Csound is the most powerful computer music language in the world, with a direct lineage to Max Mathews’ original Music-N languages. The focus of this class will be a synthesis of three topics: The Csound language, synthesizer theory, and composing weird alien music.
Together, we will demystify the assembly-like syntax of the Csound language. We will cover the fundamentals of synthesizer theory, including: oscillators, filters, envelopes, amplifiers and modulation. Finally, we’ll tie it all together by composing sounds in the vein of classic Sci-Fi movies.

I previously mentioned I had written an article for the journal. I’m happy to announce that “Perl and Csound – Part I” is included in this issue. I want to personally thank the editors James Hearon and Steven Yi for giving me the opportunity to contribute to one of my favorite online publications.
