Computer Music Class Syllabus (G6611/spring-2001)

NOTE: We will be placing class announcements, etc. in this space -- so check here often! We will also be adding quite a lot to this syllabus as the term progresses (code examples, on-line soundfiles, assignments, etc.).

Although some of the weeks are spilling over into other weeks (and previous weeks), we will still be organizing the web pages here by topic. In other words, the concept of a "week" should be considered a bit diffuse...
