Course summary

The MMus Sonic Arts is an opportunity to explore a wide range of creative approaches to studio-based music, including fixed-media composition, improvisation systems, sound art installation and composition for video/film. You have full access to the Electronic Music Studios, which offers advanced facilities for electro-acoustic composition, multi-channel work and live/interactive performance.

You develop a rigorous conceptual framework for your creative practice, and engage critically with contemporary ideas and debates in sound art and computer music. As part of your studies you may choose from a range of options that encompass interactive/generative music, film music and film-making. Studio composers taking this pathway may elect to take options in notation-based composition, providing they have the requisite prior experience.

Collaborative and interdisciplinary projects, in conjunction with other academic departments and/or external organisations, are also facilitated and encouraged. The pathway is particularly useful for students wishing to pursue studio and computer-based research or professionals seeking to develop their expertise in technology-based creative practice.
