Week 1-5 Information Gathering
Exploration of music theory concepts. Topics include:
the Tonnetz, Euclidean Rhythms, theory of chord progressions,
and the mathematics of musical scales.
Exploration of many examples of music visualization.
We considered applying natural language analysis (n-gram analysis) to prediction or generation of notes.
Technologies that can be used to manipulate and generate music and musical sounds
Week 6 - 9/30 Beginning of ChucK music programming exploration
Discovered how to manipulate musical notes and their associated frequencies with the MIDI-related functions in ChucK
Manipulate and control time in ChucK.
Create sound with unit generators
change the timbre of unit generators using parameters and
Week 7-8 Further Chuck exploration
Notes and chords represented in arrays and used in functions
Week 9 Chunity Discovery and exploration
Connect ChucK and Unity and use ChucK to generate sound within Unity using variables from within
the Unity environment
Further exploration of timbres using unit generators and envelopes and an understanding of how
musical instruments make sound.
