Media Creation A (Creation×Information・Media)

In this class, we deepen our understanding of creative expressions like music, video, and poetry while combining the perspectives of various creators. First, we will look at the history of film and interview and analyze recent trends in video art. Then, we will consider the significance of music in media society, focusing on computer music and algorithmic composition. Additionally, we will connect this with artistic trends based on poetry, the foundation of art, and we will consider how to design concepts that are instrumental in creating artwork. The instructors from different fields will lead the class together and engage in discussion.
