Nets

We’ll be talking today about GarageBand, looking at examples and talking a bit about production and (re)mixing.

One way to think about a program is as a technology that makes certain kinds of creativity or expressiveness more or less likely. My mentor, Elliot Eisner, put it well when speaking more generally about education:

The kinds of nets we know how to weave determine the kinds of nets we cast. These nets, in turn, determine the kinds of fish we catch.

Source: Eisner, E. W. (1994). Cognition and Curriculum Reconsidered (2nd ed.). New York: Teachers College Press. (p. 41)

What kind of fish does GarageBand catch? How about Sibelius? Finale NotePad? Audacity? iTunes? etc.?
