At the end of Spring 2009 I was made Director of the Multimedia Graduate Program. As well, I was designated Chair of the Department of Music. But wait, there's more! I'm still teaching this Fall! It isn't much, but in case you don't know this already, those other two gigs are quite demanding.
MUS 1270, MUS 3270 and MUS 6270 Applied Composition
Private instruction in Composition for a 1/2 hour a week (1270 and 3270) or 1 hour a week (6270). Because of my two leadership positions, I can only take a small number of students this year.
MUS 6085 Interactivity with Sound & Music I
I am super psyched to teach this course. It will be a core course for the Multimedia Graduate Program in a few years and I get to offer it to our new students early. The course covers basic programming for non-programmers and artists by using Pure Data and some Actionscript (more in Winter quarter). The official course description is like so:
Rudiments of hardware and software connectivity between different devices and programs for sound and music. Topics include the use of MIDI, Open Sound Control, and non-musically focused technology to create new sounds and musical experience. Prerequisite: graduate standing or consent of instructor.
I know. You likey.
MUS 3605-05A Orchestre dB
This will be the dB's second year and I'm not going to lie: It won't be without challenges. The furloughs and my crazy workload will certainly test my patience and stamina this year. However, I am committed to keeping the dB going and I'm thankful that my wonderful colleague, Jeffrey Miller, has agreed to volunteer his precious time to help oversee the dB
