Musical Composition MA by Research (On-Campus or by Distance Learning)


Course Description

Music as a creative art form in the 21st century can combine both tradition and innovation, bringing together instruments (some new, some with centuries of history) and the latest in high technology.

As a composer today all of these resources are available to you, and our research degrees in composition aim to foster your skills as you navigate this exciting new world.

On this programme you can create works which use electroacoustics and computer technology, traditional (and not so traditional) instrumental and vocal composition, or which combine these aspects. Works for interactive systems, multimedia, and sound installations are also welcome, and you are encouraged to find your own individual path.
