LOOP aims to expand a new model of an electronic music Lab designed to support innovative instruction in music technology. The model calls for students to fully integrate the various disciplines they study, allowing them to compose and produce music and to create software tools for their own use as electronic musicians. Students learn and operate audio software and hardware, skillfully perform electronic music within a Digital Music Ensemble and engage in community outreach.
