Introduction

Intensive and specialised, MA Sound Arts at LCC gives you the chance to develop your conceptual and contextual understanding of sound arts in practice and in theory. Develop an individual approach, build a distinctive portfolio and tap into the College's Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRISAP).

Content

Intensive and specialised, this programme is designed to further the development of students’ conceptual and contextual understanding of Sound Arts practice and its discourse. Students are encouraged to adopt a personal and distinctive approach to their work and research.

The course is designed for students who have a substantial background in producing sound-based work within the context of contemporary arts and media practice. You may have studied some aspect of sound arts - such as sound design, music technology and sonic art - at undergraduate level. You may come from other disciplines, such as fine art, digital arts, or time-based or performance art. Or you may have no formal qualifications but have significant experience of producing creative work with sound and wish to develop this work in an academic context. The main characteristic of a successful applicant is that they will already have achieved a distinctive and enquiring approach to and understanding of the aspects of sound arts that they wish to develop further in a creative and experimental academic environment.

The course includes a strong taught component combined with providing students with ample opportunities for practical work. You will be able to extend your portfolio within an academic context, engage in theoretical and practical research, develop your creative and critical skills, explore personal areas of interest in sound arts and engage in practice-based research. The aim of the course is to facilitate individual practice and guide you towards a professional career as a sound artist or into research.

Specialist areas of interest within the department include the following:

Composition
Sound recording and mixing
Phonography
Field recording and acoustic ecology
Interactive work
Sound installations
Live performance
Radiophonic practices
Sound for film
A variety of cross platform work
