MA Music Practice is intended for musicians with an interest and experience in creating music in the experimental areas of their chosen genre(s). Students will test ways of taking their existing practice in different directions and then carry out projects in which this work is presented to the public and within academia. The course is therefore a space to try out bold, new ideas and an opportunity to gain the real-world skills required by professional musicians.
Creative work can be presented as part of the festival of experimental music that takes place each year in the Media Factory but will also be presented at outside venues.
The course allows for students who prepare their work through devising, composition, studio composition or improvisation. Students will typically perform their own music, either solo or as part of an ensemble. However, applicants who prefer to direct other musicians are also welcome as are those applicants with an interest in audio art, multimedia art or interdisciplinary performance.
Applications from all candidates will be considered on their merits and in the light of the nature and scope of the programme or work proposed. Informal enquiries are welcomed. Applicants must demonstrate achievement of any one of the following:• Receipt of a 2.2 degree, or higher from a British university • A high level of achievement in undergraduate studies at a university elsewhere (e.g. for North American students a minimum overall GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale)• Professional experience in the field or a related field in their home country
