  • Topic: Celebrating Sound

  •  3027BIONB 4200  LEC 001

  • The course will consist of lectures, discussions, and later, student presentations. There will be opportunities/assignments for students to make their own audio recordings of natural sounds and as well as learn to synthesize sounds/compose musical pieces, using freely available software (digital audio workstations) on their laptops/smartphones, for demonstration and presentation. I intend this course to be a celebration for all of us who love and appreciate that we live in a world animated by the sound and music of animals, including crickets, cicadas, jumping spiders, frogs, toads, lizards, birds, bats, monkeys, whales, and dolphins—AND, of course Stevie Wonder, Queen, the Anonymous 4, rappers, beat-boxers, and throat singers.
