This course provides an in-depth knowledge in key areas of music technology and production. It prepares students for employment in sectors such as internet distribution, music production and post-production, software engineering for music, composition for new media and related disciplines. This course takes into account the radical changes in the music industry from an offline model (CD sales and radio) to an online dematerialised model bringing new challenges and opportunities.



The music and audio industries are taking new directions: content is increasingly created and shared collaboratively through online mediums, artists are not distributing CDs anymore but rather self-publish themselves over personal websites, music is more than ever present everywhere whilst generating revenues from it is increasingly challenging. The above criteria are leading to a complete re-questioning and re-structuring of the music and audio industries, which is the core research question of this course.

This course offers a mix of practice based research through the use of state of the art audio production facilities and taught classes by academics and industry experts. This course offers six taught units and is complemented by an independent project, which can be a dissertation, a portfolio of work, a software application or a combination of deliverables.
