New York University Steinhardt Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions

Description

NYU Steinhardt Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions (MPAP) Music Technology Program seeks qualified candidates to teach in the following fields:
 
Electronic Music Performance (Graduate & Undergraduate Combined)
This course is designed for instrumentalist and electronic musicians who want to explore performing with electronic music (analog or digital/software-based) using historical and contemporary methods in an ensemble performance environment-- incorporating techniques for live sound processing, synthesis or interactive elements into their work. Students will work from classic repertoire and recent up to the minute  works/compositions, focusing on individual and ensemble work, improvisation, live electronics, live sound processing etc. The course aims to improve a student’s understanding of the aesthetic implications of the use of electronic music techniques, alternative controllers and devices, in an ensemble situation. An end-of-semester concert will be planned. All students should have some prior experience with electronic music and the ability to read a music score, but it is not required. Weekly readings, music listening, and concert attendance/reviews, will be assigned. Students will be responsible for the preparation of any electronic instruments or software they choose to use for our weekly sessions.

Graduate & Undergraduate Internship in Music Technology
The Internship course instructor guides and oversees the internship experience for undergraduate and graduate music technology students. Responsibilities include meeting with and guiding students through their internship experience, from the selection process through completion, as well as veting current and prospective internship employers and sites. Students and  internship employers are required to document the internship experience. After reviewing the documentation, the internship course instructor grades the student’s work and confirms that the internship was completed before course credit is awarded.

Analog Electronics Lab (Undergraduate level)
This is the hands-on lab course accompanying Analog Electronics. Lab sessions will contain hands-on experience with analog audio circuitry. The course culminates with a student developed final project. The Analog Electronics course serves as a practical introduction to analog electronics with an emphasis on circuits of interest to those of us in the music and audio world. The math and theory of common analog circuit building blocks are covered with an emphasis on their real world implementation.
