Composition for Screen

Please note that programme structure and course availability is subject to change. This is a one-year, research and compositional performance-based MSc with a focus on practices for composing music and sound for the screen. The focus of the in-depth compositional investigations will include film/TV music as well as current computer multimedia production practices, such as for music videos, commercials, video games and web pages. You will become proficient in the theoretical, technical, artistic and intellectual demands of composing music and sound for use in TV/radio/ film and other media environments. You will be able to experiment with new styles in media, and receive practical experience and timely feedback in collaborating with others. The programme also provides an opportunity for you to enhance your business and management skills in the media industry as they pertain to music and sound. The Edinburgh Film Music Orchestra, an ensemble run by students and staff of the programme, currently performs film music and often features performances of compositions by MSc Composition for Screen students.
