Course summary

Overview

Would you like to expand the range of your music technology capabilities and explore new techniques? This Masters in music technology will equip you with a broad range of skills – not only in music technology, but also in related media like video, electronic composition and performance, and software design. Your technical mastery of the latest hardware and software will make you attractive to a wide range of potential employers.

The University of West London is home to one of the largest audio complexes in Europe, enabling you to learn on some of the best equipment in the industry.

With the help of our highly experienced staff, who are actively engaged in the music industry, you will cover everything from digital audio interface design to multi-track recording and mixing for surround sound.

You will also create your own personal development plan and learn how to conduct Masters-level research into specific aspects of music production.

Course detail

The course focuses on current topics, from direct-to-stereo and ambient recording through non-linear techniques to the evolving arena of surround-sound mixing and recording. It will also encompass software interface programming and its use within electro-acoustic composition and performance.

In the final stages of your course, you will undertake an ambitious, self-managed practical project on a topic of your choice. This is your chance to build on what you have learned and display your full range of abilities.

As part of LCM, you will be able to call on a diverse range of musicians to collaborate, record and network with throughout the course. This facility extends even further, to collaborations with students from media, moving image (video and film), digital animation and games-design backgrounds from across the University. By taking advantage of these opportunities, you can enhance your CV and build your professional network even before you graduate.
