Course summary

The MA in Music Technology by Research is aimed at research-focused graduates with experience in music technology or audio engineering: both high level creators interested in composition, production and contemporary aesthetic approaches to audio, and those who wish to develop tools for other content composers, performers and analysts. The course recognises that technology is applicable to many areas of musical endeavour, from creation to understanding, and may have many different forms of output including compositions, audio processing software, performance systems, studies of existing technologies etc. The Department has excellent facilities to support a wide range of research activities in this area.

Applicants should be able to articulate a clear research plan, stating its context and citing relevant existing work in the area as well as identifying the type(s) of outputs the research will generate.

Submission by dissertation: A dissertation of between 30,000 and 40,000 words investigating the candidate's registered topic, accompanied by a comprehensive resource list of relevant materials (including software, production work, internet and audio-visual resources, etc. as relevant).
