Over 3 years, you’ll study modules across four different strands, developing your knowledge and skills in production; performance; the contexts and histories of electronic music; and creative entrepreneurship for music. You’ll also acquire electronic music production techniques using digital audio workstations (e.g. Logic X, Ableton Live and Pro Tools HD), and gain experience using a variety of analogue and digital technologies to produce your projects. Our optional modules will allow you to broaden your experience by applying these skills to music for media projects (for example, in games, films and apps). Throughout your studies, you’ll be supported by a teaching team with wide-ranging expertise in electronic music, popular music and creative music technology. You can also join our Electronic Music Society, which hosts weekly workshops and organises live performances and club nights.
