Course summary

Console, computer and mobile gaming are now as common a recreational activity as watching movies or listening to music. The UK gaming industry is reported to be growing exponentially, and exciting developments continue in the growing interactive web and media content scene.Creative Music Technology (Games and Interactive Media) is designed to give you industry-standard skills and confidence in sound, music and audio production for gaming and interactive media content. This includes the creation of innovative sound effects, musical composition and orchestration, voice recording and audio post-production.Great sound design has the ability to enhance the gaming experience while creating emotional narrative and dynamic impact. Gain valuable insights into sound design, composition and dialogue on this specialist programme.You'll source original sound through Foley-studio style recording, synthesis, and location or site-specific sound capture. Within gaming, music composition ranges from traditional orchestration and arranging through to more abstract, electronic or urban production. You'll explore composition and the dialogue/voiceover recording and editing that often complements it. You'll also learn audio post-production skills such as editing, processing, producing and mixing, with a strong focus on the techniques used to implement this audio content into interactive game environments through industry-standard software known as Middleware. Our goal in designing this course is to give you the freedom to explore creatively, while instilling the technical skills you'll need to forge a career in this exciting industry. As your studies progress, you'll collaborate on industry style projects, offering insights into team working and responding to a game designer or director's brief. Collaborations with students across other areas such as Creative Computing, Acting and Music (game designers, voice actors, producers and musicians) are encouraged.
