In your first year, you will learn the foundations of recording and production alongside developing creative approaches to composition and performance. You will gain an understanding of audio theory, studio technology, digital audio workstation production and visual image-making. You will also explore key compositional strategies and technology-focused performance techniques. In year two, you will have the opportunity to work with live sound and broadcast systems, develop studio production techniques, explore sound design and composition for screen media, and investigate the innovative approach of spatial sound. Through the study of emerging technologies and product and instrument design, you will explore programmable software, hardware development and sensor technologies.
Your final year focuses on your progression into professional practice and employment alongside a dissertation paper and conference presentation. You will develop your creative specialism in a major, public-facing project that demonstrates engagement with the marketplace. Advanced optional modules allow you to create sound for films, installations and performing arts along with developing professional studio skills and hardware design. Enterprise and business studies enable work placements and the development of a professional network, ready for your career. The practical elements of the degree are underpinned by a critical understanding of the creative and economic potential of sound within contemporary culture. Socio-political and philosophical perspectives continue to evolve your thinking and understanding of technology focused economies.
