Films, TV, computer games, even apps, so much of the media we experience nowadays comes with sound and music. If you enjoy working on your own compositions and sound design, and you’re excited by what you could accomplish, this course could help you prepare for a career in creating music for imagery. Right from the start we’ll give you the chance to immerse yourself in an environment ideally suited to working with sound. The course offers training in music composition, orchestration, conducting and performance. You’ll also be able to get involved in sound recording, audio production, sound design and film theory. The facilities at Huddersfield are of a professional standard. You’ll have plenty of recording and composition studio space to use if you need it. And we make sure to keep upgrading the equipment, so we’re always up-to-date with the industries you want to go into. We believe in being collaborative too. The course is at the centre of a hive of creativity. You’ll be able to mix and work with fellow students who will be aspiring classical and pop musicians, recording engineers, programmers, audio electronics experts and interface designers. While you’re here you might be able to work with some leading practitioners from the world of sound and vision too. We’ve previously hosted visits from Ray Russell, the documentary film composer who worked on A Touch of Frost, producers Charlie Russell and Brad Spence, drummers Mike Heaton, Bill Bruford and Craig Blundell, guitarist Alex Hutchins and jazz saxophonists Snake Davis and Andy Scott. Every November you’ll be able to see contemporary music in action at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the UK’s largest contemporary music festival, and the label-defying Electric Spring Festival. The course is accredited by JAMES, the consortium of music, entertainment and media industry organisations.
