Students will learn how to edit and manipulate sound with the help of Ableton Live software, as well as the basics of digital sound mixing. They will also be taught different techniques and tools to manipulate and transform sound.

Recording Techniques

Before Home Studios appeared, the production process was very different from the one we know nowadays. Each phase of production took place separately and was carried out by a professional who was specialised in the corresponding phase.

This subject will give students an insight of the theory and methods required for the recording of the main instruments which are part of today’s productions.

Introduction to harmony

An introduction to harmony and the basic concepts needed to master harmony and composition. It’s an important foundation that will help us training our ability in recognising melodic, rhythmic and harmonic structures used in music so we can apply this knowledge in our own productions.

This subject is composed of a theoretical part in order to reinforce the previous knowledge and also a practice part focused on the internalization of rhythm, tuning, reading and auditory recognition of simple music pieces.

This subject creates an essential foundation to follow up with other subjects such as harmony and film scoring.

History and aestethics of electronic music I and II

The main goal of this subject is to foster the critical abilities of the student concerning electronic music: understanding what he hears further than its form and to be able to contextualise its implicit connotations (social, racial, economic, cultural and sexual).

Through a chronological study of what electronic music is and has been in the past, the subject focuses on the circumstances which have allowed its evolution and multiple transformations during the last hundred years, so that students possess the tools needed for developing a conceptual cartography in which they can place their own aesthetic.

Sound design I and II

In this subject, students will learn how to design any sound from scratch, as well as how to emulate different sounds just by hearing them. Students will be able to recreate any sound of the sector productions through Serum and Massive, two of the current standards of electronic music.

The goal of this subject is for students to acquire a basic knowledge about synthesis and subtractive synthesis, as well as to be able to create any kind of sound by using the different synthesizers covered in the subject.

This subject is not restricted to a specific style but sounds from many current styles will be designed: Dubstep, House, Progressive, Electro, Dance, Indie/Rock, Pop, Hip hop, Drum and Bass, etc.

Sound Basics

When handling sound, a solid knowledge about its nature and behaviour is essential. This subject provides students with the fundamentals they need to master before acquiring further knowledge of sound. In order to achieve this, students will undertake several practical assignments with the purpose of understanding the physical properties of sound and developing creative workflows for its treatment.

The goal is for students to understand the physical characteristics of the soundwaves, as well as their treatment during the recording, editing and mixing processes of a music production. Furthermore, they will learn the basics concerning the elements involved in the capture and treatment of sound and their use. Finally, through practical exercises, they will also learn how to auditively discriminate sound, in order to process it and identify possible problems.

Dj (optional)

In this subject, which is optional, the student will learn to use a standard DJ booth, as well as the different softwares used nowadays by the professionals in the scene.
