This degree should be your choice if you have studied music formally and wish to explore the technology behind music and audio. For many, music composition and performance is a central part of their lives. The realisation of this music may be through any combination of voices or instruments, traditional or electronic. As a musician, you get the best from your instruments by understanding how they are designed, and how they work. An ability to use audio technically is vitally important for enhancing sound and recording. UWE offers a wide range of performance opportunities, from African drumming and mbira, bell ringing, big band, brass consort, chamber and full choirs, sax group, and woodwind group to the full symphony orchestra. We expect that, as a student on this course, you will really want to get involved in lots of these activities. Performance modules will give you experience of performing in and managing concerts with your fellow students, working together with UWE's Centre for Performing Arts.
