soundartCongratulations to Erik Brunvand and Nina McCurdy whose paper, Making Noise: Using Sound-­Art to Explore Technological Fluency, will receive one of three best paper awards at SIGCSE 2017.

Abstract: We describe our experience designing and delivering a general education technological fluency course that frames the discussion of computer science and engineering technology (electronics and programming) in the context of sound-art: art that uses sound as its medium. This course is aimed at undergraduate students from a wide variety of backgrounds and is designed to fit into the "Intellectual Explorations" area of a general undergraduate program. The goal is to introduce computer engineering and computational principles to non-CS students through an exploration of sound-art, experimental and electronic music, noise-making circuits, hardware hacking, and circuit bending.
