Overview

This exciting course offers an ideal opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the creation and presentation of contemporary music.

The course offers two distinct pathways.

In one pathway, students may specialise in instrumental composition, in which they will explore a broad range of compositional approaches and techniques, with a strong emphasis on inquiry-led practice. This will include collaboration with professional performers and peers, and/or the scope for interacting across disciplines, as well as making mixed-media work.

Alternatively, students may specialise in electronic/electroacoustic composition, in which they explore creative applications of analogue/digital technologies, studio-based composition techniques, real-time audio processing techniques, aesthetics of sonic art, historical developments in electronic music, temporal/spatial-audio, post-digital aesthetics, amongst others.

Course tutors – Dorothy Ker, Adrian Moore, George Nicholson and Adam Stansbie – are all highly experienced and internationally recognised composers.
