This six week course examines the practice of mixed acoustic/electroacoustic live performance (also known as live electronics) as a true multi-modal art form encompassing at least sonic, visual and dramaturgical components within its artistic remit. The unit presents an expansive elaboration on Emmerson’s local-field relationship identifying numerous points of dialectical critique that correspond directly with the paradigm of musical transcendence. It presents the human body and gestural timeframes as the origin of all music, and the natural world together with environmental timeframes as a transcendent. This deeply significant standpoint positions not only sonic art but music in general as an artform that naturally extends along an expansive continuum from the orbit of mundane human existence to the realm of the sublime – the spiritual and eternal plane that we refer to as transcendent.  The course comes complete with a reading materials plus weekly lectures and tutorials with the author.
