Tune into STEM through Music and Sound

Tune into STEM through Music and Sound

Everybody sings when they are young, and many play a musical instrument. By university, however, social pressures and career preparations take us away from the tactile joys of creating sound. While we continue to enjoy music as adults, the practice of ‘musicking’ is assumed to be for professional musicians. The aim of this SMArt Masterclass is to gather a community of students to create original sound works with basis and inspiration from science and engineering concepts. As with the sciences, musical ideas and creativity comes about through process and experimentation. Students will receive an overview of concept-based experimental music with visual scores. After interacting with these materials, students will create their own visual materials in which to create shared sonic scenarios based upon their scientific practices or a sonic representation of collected data. The masterclass will culminate in a large, spatialized sound performance with the student creating artful sounds with objects found in their labs or natural environments. This masterclass will be facilitated by Dr. Nicholas Papador, Associate Professor of Music in the School of Creative Arts. The environment will be inclusive to those with no formal musical training or those with experience in any musical genre. Open to all University of Windsor students.
