AUDI 301 History of Audio


This course offers students an exposition of the history and evolution of audio technologies and practices, while also engaging students in an active process of analysis and critique through different lenses (such as aesthetic, technological, sociocultural, political, and economic). The course enables students to deepen their awareness and appreciation of the historical dimensions and trajectories of audio theory, technology, practice, and aesthetics, while also revealing and drawing attention to deeper and more critical themes and issues, that might range from technological debates (e.g. acoustical vs. electrical recording, fidelity vs. convenience, different values and approaches toward production) to sociocultural, political (e.g. issues of access and affordance, diversity, intellectual property).
