Bridging the Gap Between Art and Science Education Through Teaching Electronic Musical Instrument Design
Electronic Musical Instrument Design is an excellent vehicle for bringing students from multiple disciplines together to work on projects, and help bridge the perennial gap between the arts and the sciences. This paper describes how at Tufts University, a school with no music technology program, students from engineering (electrical, mechanical, and computer), music, dance, and visual art areas use their complementary skills, and teach each other, to develop new devices and systems for music performance and control. Keywords Science education, music education, engineering, electronic music, gesture controllers, MIDI.
