I have received some questions, so here is a quick update about the home exam. The exam will be in two parts, each of which should be 5 pages of text (10 pages in total). The first part will be 5 questions taken from the whole curriculum. The second part will be your own topic. Examples of topic:

A few things from today:

  • The home exam will be in the form of a 10 page text document. 5 pages will be devoted to answering 5 questions from the curriculum. The other 5 pages is for your own little research project in the world of sound theory. The title for this will need to be handed in to the department on 25 October, so please try to come up with a title that we can discuss next week.
  • Next week we will go through various types of sound synthesis in PD, so bring your laptop.
  • The conference we are organizing next year is called NIME

Remember that there will be a lecture this coming Thursday (7 October), even though this is the "study week". We need all the coming Thursdays to be able to get through all the planned lectures in the course.

There will be no lectures this and next week (16 & 23 September), due to paternity leave (fødselspermisjon). There will be no changes to the lecture plan, only the dates will be pushed forward two weeks. Lecture #4 on musical instruments will be 30 September.

Please continue to read in the book, and practice working with the software.

I have posted the description of Assignment 1 which is due 17 September (submissions should be done in Fronter ). If you struggle with PD, I have uploaded some video tutorials in Norwegian here and there are also many tutorials in English on YouTube . Remember to start reading in the book, chapter numbers are given for each lecture . You are not expected to understand all the math, so you can gently jump over equations and parts that are not relevant.

Remember to bring the following to class on Thursday: laptop, headset, sound files (AIFF/WAV). It would be good if you download and install the software so that we can get started as quickly as possible.
