MUS 190 - Critical Listening and Acoustics

3 Cr.
Contact Hours Per Week: 3 Lec.

A lecture-demonstration course, Critical Listening and Acoustics will introduce the student to all the elements that make up a successful recording. From initial considerations of the recording environment, through differences in instrument types and microphone types, to various techniques for recording directly versus acoustical pick-up of the sound source, the student will gain knowledge of current techniques and practices and understand what the cause and effect relationships are. Through evaluating current master recordings, ear-training drills, and first-hand experience of various acoustical environments the student will learn how to identify critical elements of sound, effects, and balance in recordings.
