Designed sound surrounds us in almost all areas of our lives. In this programme you will explore the physical properties of sound and learn how to technically design and manipulate it. You will produce soundtracks for various media such as film, animation and computer games, you will investigate the powerful effects of sound in different environments and become familiar with the entire acoustic communication chain - from the sound source to the recipient.

Audio designers compose music of various genres, create digital sound designs and acoustic special effects, realise speech productions and manage sound recordings with bands and ensembles.
