Music Technology, EarSketch, and Georgia Tech

Join us after school this Wednesday November 7th in room 134 to meet a very special guest from Georgia Tech.

Jason Freeman, who is a professor of music technology at Georgia Tech, the chair of the university’s School of Music, and the co-creator of EarSketch, will discuss the field of music technology, identify career paths in music technology, and describe the undergraduate music technology degree at Georgia Tech (http://music.gatech.edu/bsmt). He will also provide an update on the design and development of EarSketch (http://earsketch.gatech.edu) and answer your questions.

Music Technology is an interdisciplinary field that combines music, computing, electrical engineering, psychology, and industrial design. Music technologists not only create music with technology. They also create the software and hardware that help us make music in new ways, and they conduct scientific research that helps us understand how both humans and computers hear music.
