University of Sheffield
Study with experts at the cutting-edge of technical, creative and theoretical knowledge in this rapidly evolving area of study. The course focuses upon the relationship between technology and creative practice, training musical students to use software tools and enabling students with a solid music technology background to investigate creative opportunities. Initial intensive training in the knowledge and methods of the field at the start of the course is followed by opportunities for increasingly independent research and exploration. We take a broad and inclusive view of the sonic arts; embracing anything from sound installations to free-improvised performances, computer programming through to fine art practice, art in which sound is the medium through to that in which sound plays a supporting role.
MA: A 2.1 in music or a combined degree with a substantial music component. International students should have an overall international English language testing system (IELTS) grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 5.5 in each component, or equivalent.
Modules: computer music programming; audio-visual interaction; analytical and contextual seminars; creative media portfolio; creative foundation; creative portfolio; intermediate digital studio; research techniques, critique of research.
Students will be assessed on coursework (including short exercises and 1 piece of written work) and a portfolio of creative work with a written commentary.
University and Faculty funding is available each year. The closing date for applications is mid-January. The department has a small number of tuition studentships available. The closing date for these is the end of April.
