The ultimate combination of low and high tech. Found-object sound sources (trash) are sampled, manipulated and transformed through science and technology into danceable beats. Along the way we’ll address issues of sustainability and plastic pollution, acoustics, and music production. Students will learn how studios work with sound to create sound effects, as well as how DJs layer sounds to create electronic dance music.
