This module introduces students to the field of organology
to stimulate students to design, modify and build their own
musical instruments. By reviewing ways in which sound
production techniques have influenced musical practices
and styles, students analyse the role of technology in
sonic art-making process. Students will be introduced
to instruments from a variety of cultures and learn to
classify them in terms of their sound generation methods.
Practices and styles are analysed in relation to instrument
design. Students will then build and design their own
musical instruments in preparation for a performance that
takes place at the end of the semester.
