Module: Generated Sounds (Advanced)

In this project you will:

  • Discover the world of Microsound – how small chunks of sound can be used to make enormous pieces.
  • Learn about granular synthesis – the way in which any sound can be split up and reassembled into new sounds.
  • Discover composers who use ideas of Microsound to create fluid granular clouds and mighty blocks of sound.
  • Explore concepts of density and disorder to help you imagine new complexes of sounds.
  • Apply this knowledge in the development of your very own Microsound composition.
