This dynamic programme will develop a variety of interdisciplinary skills ranging across digital music composition and performance, computer science, and cultural studies.
Students will gain in-depth knowledge of:
* computer music composition and performance;
* real-time computer music programming (Max/MSP);
* non-real-time computer music programming;
* algorithmic composition;
* electroacoustic composition;
* human-computer interaction;
* the key theories that have informed understanding of the digital age.
In addition, students will learn how to plan, execute, realise, and document a musical-technological project; translate musical ideas into fully-functioning interactive computer music programmes and/or scores; and reflect on creative work in light of past and present cultural developments.
