Electronic/Electro-Acoustic Composition

This programme provision intends to extend to doctoral level the richly eclectic musical experience that our students enjoy on undergraduate and Master's programmes, and thereby enhance the LCM's burgeoning postgraduate community; the DMus also aims to maximise our current research strengths in the composition, performance, and music technology subject areas.
