We will look at the practices of musicians who are using (or have used) the computer as a primary instrument, such as Sachiko M, Leo Hoffman, Ikue Mori, Annette Krebs, Merzbow, and Michel Waisvisz. Electronic, visual, and/or theatrical components of these works will be deciphered and analyzed. Students will create instruments with software and hardware components for a final performance.
