Synthesis course and sound design

General

Program Description

A course of synthesis and sound creation in analog and digital environments, oriented to the production of original sounds for their practical application in electronic music and electro acoustics.

We have developed a unique course of applied synthesis where the objectives are: Understanding the different types of synthesis and their different sound possibilities. The identification of the parts and signal routing of any analog or digital synthesizer, hardware or virtual.

And the design and creation of original sounds both melodic and percussive as well as environmental using advanced techniques of synthesis and deepening in the most widespread subtractive, FM and modular.

All parts of the syllabus will be accompanied by practical examples oriented to the student's musical style for their better understanding.
