University of the Highlands and Islands

Music and the Environment

The course provides a foundation for musicians to develop new paths for creative, entrepreneurial and environmentally responsible endeavours. In addition, the course equips musicians to work within their own community, establishing effective and successful contributions to their local economy. The course focuses on the 3 distinct but interrelated themes of music performance and creation; the cultural and historical context; and the creative economy and sustainability. Activities during the course encourage and demand the skills of observation, investigation, experimentation, reflection, creation, innovation and design. Students can work on real-life work scenarios to develop new works, performances and enterprises in local settings across the Highlands and Islands gaining key skills and expertise to form complex and compelling artistic works, with a clear understanding of relevant environmental factors. Students also acquire skills to create sustainable enterprises and make a contribution to the creative economy and network of other artists in the UK and Europe.
