Course summary

Course Details

With the next generation of games consoles upon us, the demand for 'Hollywood' quality soundtracks to match the increasingly impressive visuals in games has never been greater. If you are a sound designer or composer, this course gives you the opportunity to explore the issues and opportunities that interactivity presents. Your course has been designed by a teaching team who have professional experience and links to the games industry, ensuring the latest developments in games audio are reflected in your study. You will gain up-to-date skills in sound design and interactive composition, and explore the importance of music and sound in other media. You will have access to a suite of high-quality professional music studios, and you will develop your expertise using real-world game engines, middleware and prototyping tools to implement sound and music into games.

Course Benefits

You will have access to a suite of high quality, professional music studios - approved by JAMES, the accrediting body of the Music Producers' Guild and the Association of Professional Recording Studios - and you will also benefit from our links with local and national music, arts and festival organisations. Our music facilities include five recording studios, each with a control room and live area with instruments and amps.
