Good colleges for experimental music/computer music near NY?

Post by John Nowak » 02 Mar 2003, 20:08

Does anyone know of a good college for experimental music, computer music, electroacoustic music, etc etc? Something where they do the traditional max/msp, csound type of courses and such. The technical end of things is what I am looking for. The less theory and history, the better.

I am looking for something in or around New York, preferably in New York City.

I know of NYU's Music Tech program, the experimental music program at Sarah Lawrence, and the Electro-acoustic music program at Dartmouth. Obviously there's some good stuff in California, and Stanford and such.. but I wanna stay in or near New York.

Any opinions or comments on the places I mentioned, or any info on places I haven't mentioned would be VERY MUCH appreciated. Thanks.

Check out Bard College, about two hours north of the city, right on the Hudson. They have a rather extensive electronic music program with Richard Teitelbaum as the professor. Lots of Max stuff, some Csound, as well. I was his teaching assistant when I went there and it was an eye opening experience!

I go to the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. The Peck School of the Arts has a great electronic program. I've gotten a ton out of the classes and professors here, and there's a lot of personal attention.

I'm personally wrapping up a music degree at the UW-Madison. I'm way into electronic music, but no such program here, they started to lean towards one, but no....

I was looking into other colleges a year or so ago, and found the directory that MIX magazine puts out is very nice. Has a LOT of colleges I've never heard of doing things I never thought they would. A number in the new york area as well.

So there's a good electo music program at Milwaukee, eh?? hmm. can't believe i didn't know that. Who are some of the professors?

If you're willing to come down to Baltimore, Peabody Conservatory has a good emusic program, and in fact, released one of the more substantial research reports on audio and OS X. They found of course that OS X rules. :)

There's TONS on California. Just do some Google searching. Berkeley is great.

I did this program:

While its not the biggest and they don't have some of the fancy gear that private places like Expressions do, they have a great program. They'll teach things that you never even thought about like music law, how to run a label or studio. etc. It gives you a great overall understanding of the music business and then you can pursue further classes in either the recording side of things or the business end. Towards the end of my time there, the gear was getting a little beat up because of budget cuts. Hopefully that's been solved.
