ohne Vorbildung


MUTOR offers open courses and teaching materials for distant and blended learning in music technology. The repository was designed to answer to the needs of bachelor and master students as well as the general public interested in questions such as “how do we perceive and process music cognitively”, “what is microtonality”, “how do we synthesize new sounds”, “how do we combine sounds with images”, “how do we move sounds in space”, “how do we track the movements and gestures of performers” and many more. This particular class is about the Science of Music, from the physics of sound generation to the cognitive abilities of humans to listen to music and to be moved by it.

This MUTOR class has a total of 12 units, each unit is composed of a synopsis, specific content, quizzes and a section with references. A large number of images, animations, (interactive) audio and video examples are used in these units to make asynchronous and blended learning a pleasant experience. In these units, the focus is both on scientific research as well as artistic application thereof. The materials are supplemented by Max patches (see www.cycling74.com).
