Course detail

Club Music 2

FaVU-KLHU2Acad. year: 2020/2021

Club music of various genres is an area in which students and graduates of schools focused on fine arts and design surprisingly often excel. In the environment of art faculties, disciplines that have been overseen so far are gradually gaining ground today, however, electronic music has so far been a side of interest. The course further develops - in terms of its scope and topics - the course Club Music 1 taught in the winter semester.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will expand their prerequisites for the creation of electronic music, especially the knowledge and skills associated with HW and SW instruments. The deepening of competencies for musical practice will also be accompanied by the ability to theoretically reflect on one's own work.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Lectures accompanied by practical, audio, or AV demonstrations are then developed in practical exercises accompanied by individual consultations.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Credit will be given for active participation in seminars and meet semester assignment in the form of a public presentation of the project itself, complemented by technology (what are the technical solutions, principles and method of production) and cultural context (sources of inspiration, socio-political context, etc.). Presentations will take place during the semester in Vašulka kitchen Brno.

Course curriculum

The syllabus draws the axis of the subjects, where we can move freely, to open, leave topics and return them as needed. It defines broader areas that mark a starting point for practical exercises.

1. DJing and hybrid DJing with HW
2. Software for live performance
3. Developing and maintaining HW and SW chain/environment (midi, osc, cv, tuning, etc.)
4. Sources of inspiration - search, revision
5. Live vs. studio, the space in between
6. Community ecosystem. Communication, self-presentation.

Aims

This course aims to help students deepen their own musical language, broaden the view in the technological possibilities of music production of club music, from low cost DIY, through modular synth, DJing to live coding and their interconnection into complex systems. Emphasis is placed on the availability of the tool, freedom in the possibilities of expression and awareness of the context.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Compulsory attendance (tolerated absence 50%). Missed classes can be replaced by processing an alternative assignment arising from an individual agreement with the teacher.
