CalArts Plan B Analog Synthesis Symposium Jan 14-25

Peter Grenader will be teaching a six-class course at California Institute of the Arts during the upcoming 2008 Winter Interim on analog synthesis.

Schedule as follows:

Week 1: M/W/F 4:00–6:00
Week 2: TH/F 4:00–6:00

Credit Hours: 15

This class is limited to CalArts student body. Alumni may contact the CalArts School of Music to determine if you are eligible.

Here’s the description, via Grenader:

Curriculum will include a detailed overview on the operation of CalArts’ new Plan B system, as well as in-depth instruction on the principles and practices of additive and subtractive analog synthesis which will include both theory and analysis of various electronic works which utilize analog technology.

Please note that Morton Subotnick will be returning to CalArts during the interim to teach two multi-session classes. One is ‘Creating with New Media’, and another entitled ‘What Music really Is” which is also in B-305 and precedes the Plan B classes the first week. As well, Barry Schrader will be teaching an electro-acoustic flavored single session class which runs after mine next Friday.

Sounds like an incredible opportunity to learn from three electronic music pioneers.
