Critical Listening


The Critical Listening course focuses on developing critical-listening skills from an engineering perspective and presents students with recorded music from studio sessions, live concert material, and audio postproduction mixes as the subject of analysis. Course topics include the physics of sound, acoustics and psychoacoustics, sound analysis, the identification of various production techniques, and instrument identification. Students will also hone their critical-listening skills through project-based assignments that encourage them to see the connections between sound waves, audio signals, the acoustic environment, and individual perceptions of sound.
