The MA Computer Music programme focuses upon the technical, creative, historical, critical and performative aspects of computer music. It serves musicians, creative professionals, educators, scientists, or artists who are interested in the integration of music and technology. This MA programme provides opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration within a large university environment, and is delivered within the context of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Scientific Research in Music (ICSRiM) and the Centre for Practice-led Research in the Arts (CePRA).
The programme is led by an academic team with a strong presence in the international computer music and sonic arts research communities. Computer music is a broad and exciting field of research, and this programme engages with current thinking and practice in areas such as interactivity and audiovisual applications, machine learning, sound spatialisation, algorithmic composition, signal processing and sound synthesis. Each area of study is placed within an aesthetic, cultural and historical context, so that the theory and practice of computer music may be more comprehensively understood. The programme includes space for taking an optional module in areas such as music psychology, composition, performance, or critical musicology.
Careers In addition to development of generic skills, the MA Computer Music programme encourages an approach to skills development that is adapted for individual requirements. Students focus upon areas of interest in guided project work to achieve the technological and creative skills that they require for future employment or research. Students undertake a detailed audit of existing skills and then follow a tailored programme of skills development.
