Electronic Music Club
The Electronic Music Club is open to any students at Lost
Mountain Middle School. The purpose of the club is to give
students the opportunity to create music through electronic
media such as digital recording, effects processing, MIDI
sequencing, sound editing, and live performance.
Additionally, students may explore possibilities of
combining their music with other media and areas of fine
arts (drama, dance, art). Other correlations may be made
between music projects and other academic areas such as
science, math, history, literature, social studies, etc. The
compositional techniques and possible projects listed below
are just some examples of what students may do. Students are
encouraged to come up with their own ideas and submit them
Students are asked to complete leveled projects. These
projects are designed to teach two things: how to use the
software and hardware, and how to compose music. These
projects gradually increase technical requirements to
explore the full potential of hardware, software, and online
resources. Each project also carries different compositonal
requirements; thus allowing the student to create a
portfolio of various kind of compositions.
EMC meets every Wednesday and Friday at 8 a.m. There is no
audition or prior experience necessary. There is no
attendance policy. Members don't need to attend every
session; they only need to come regularly enough to stay
productive. Work may also be done at home on your own
equipment. Students interested in EMC should report to the
Music Technology Lab and try it out.
