Electronic Music Composition (online)


Electronic Music Composition (EMC), shows you how classic and cutting edge tunes are put together so you can apply the techniques to your own tracks. In this inspirational journey, you'll find out how to develop the musical aspects of your tracks without getting too bogged down in scales and theory. It's ideal for beginners with no musical training as well as those who want to finish off the great ideas that are hiding on your hard drive. You'll learn how to add hooks, riffs, chords, basslines, melodies, develop your arrangements and work with vocals whilst keeping everything in key so it 'sounds right'. We'll analyse and breakdown massive tracks and artists in a wide variety of styles including Avicii, Skrillex, The Doors, Deadmau5, X-Press2 feat David Byrne, Nuyorican Soul, Julio Bashmore, Calvin Harris and more. What made these tracks huge and how are they put together? Overall, you receive at least 66 downloadable project examples and study aids. You will be shown how to work with a vocalist, using a real life writing situation as inspiration. No previous keyboard ability is required and the course is dual platform (Logic & Ableton). You can take this module as either a standalone course or as part of the Complete Electronic Music Composition programme. It is also included in the comprehensive Music Production Master Diploma.
