Course content

This course explores contemporary digital music production practice, including new and innovative interactive techniques available to musicians and artists today.

Using the latest in digital technology, you will develop skills in sound design, manipulation and composition to produce sound for a variety of audiences, from live performance and musical composition to sonic art installations.

You will have access to a wide and rich source of materials, from library resources to professional music software and expert academic staff to enable you to fulfil your potential.

You could be a DJ using the latest software to sample sounds from the natural environment to create beats and loops to add to your set, or you could be working with art galleries to create soundscapes for an installation. You will have the flexibility to develop both artistically and technically to create sound for a wide arena in the modern age.
