Advanced Mixed Music Composition explores creative uses of advanced audio production tools (i.e., various DSP plug-ins, controllers, microphones, surround speaker arrays, etc.) and techniques (audio editing, mastering, performance simulations, synchronization, etc.); and looks at their impact on the aesthetics and poetics of a musical project. A special emphasis is given to the problems arising from the transition between the precisely controlled studio environment to the live concert hall (i.e., loudspeaker distance, room liveliness, monitoring, etc.), and how this transition can influence the audience’s perception of a work. importance of synchronization, notation, documentation, and portability as fundamental considerations during the compositional process. Lastly, techniques for producing simple yet high quality videos for archival purposes are shown, as a means to present yet another point of view on a musical project.
