The aim of this course is to allow students to develop as creative practitioners, gaining knowledge of specific Sound Design and computing areas such as audio programming, digital signal processing, field sound recording, and spatial audio. Sound Design is about more than music. Theatre, animation, radio, and advertising, for example, all rely on compelling sound design in creating the sonic world for a production. In addition to this, creators are producing work in a range of alternative media, such as the design of 3D audio for Virtual Reality (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) using binaural and ambisonic techniques. The course will prepare you for professional work in these and other emerging fields.
