Objectives
THE COURSE AIMS AT INTRODUCING THE MAIN METHODOLOGICAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL APPROACHES FOR SOUND MANAGEMENT THROUGH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES. IN PARTICULAR, THE STUDENT WILL BE FAMILIAR WITH ALL THE METHODOLOGIES THAT CHARACTERISE THE PROCESS OF DIGITISING SOUND, FROM ITS GENERATION TO ITS PRESERVATION AND DISTRIBUTION. THE COURSE WILL ALSO PRESENT SOME MACHINE LEARNING TECHNIQUES FOR THE MANIPULATION OF MUSICAL ARTEFACTS.
Prerequisites
TOPICS COVERED IN THE COURSE INCLUDE PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF NOTIONS RELATED TO PROGRAMMING ELECTRONIC COMPUTERS, KNOWLEDGE OF METHODOLOGIES FOR THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF LOGIC CIRCUITS, AND PROGRAMMING AND MANAGEMENT OF DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS. IN ADDITION, LEARNERS SHOULD HAVE SKILLS IN SIGNAL AND COMMUNICATIONS THEORY.

Teaching Methods
THE COURSE FORESEES
- LECTURES
- ASSISTED CLASSROOM EXERCISES. STUDENTS WILL BE ASKED TO DEVELOP, INDEPENDENTLY OR IN SMALL GROUPS, SUMMARY EXERCISES ON THE THEORETICAL TOPICS PREVIOUSLY INTRODUCED.
- LABORATORY ACTIVITIES. STUDENTS WILL BE ASKED TO DEVELOP, THROUGH A PROBLEM-SOLVING APPROACH, PROJECT WORKS RELATED TO THE MAIN TOPICS DEVELOPED IN THE THEORETICAL PART.
Verification of learning
TEACHING OBJECTIVES ACHIEVEMENT IS CERTIFIED BY AN EXAM WITH AN EVALUATION IN THIRTIETHS (THE MINIMUM LEVEL OF PASSING IS "18" AND THE MAXIMUM IS "30 CUM LAUDE"), WHICH INCLUDES AN ORAL TEST INCLUDING THE DISCUSSION OF A PROJECT WORK, PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED, OF AN APPROXIMATE DURATION OF ONE HOUR. DURING THE EXAM, THE COMMISSION
- VERIFIES THE LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS COVERED IN THE THEORY LESSONS;
- VERIFIES THE ABILITY TO PRESENT ON A GIVEN TOPIC;
- VERIFIES THE AUTONOMY OF JUDGMENT IN PROPOSING THE MOST APPROPRIATE APPROACH TO ARGUING WHAT IS REQUIRED.
- ASCERTAINS THE STUDENT'S ABILITY TO IDENTIFY STRATEGIES FOR SOLVING COMPLEX PROBLEMS.
SPECIFICALLY, THE ORAL TEST CONSISTS OF THREE QUESTIONS: THE FIRST ONE CONCERNS THE PROJECT WORK AND ITS SOLUTION STRATEGY, THE SECOND AND THIRD QUESTIONS WILL FOCUS ON THE TOPICS COVERED DURING THE LECTURES . THE STUDENT REACHES THE LEVEL OF EXCELLENCE IF HE/SHE DEMONSTRATES THE ABILITY TO MAKE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE THEORETICAL TOPICS COVERED AND DEMONSTRATES FULL MASTERY OF THE ACTIVITIES CARRIED OUT TO DEVELOP THE WRITTEN TEST.
