Why study creative music technology?
Music as an art form evolves constantly, with practitioners taking inspiration from composers and artists past and present and developing future sounds.
New technologies and techniques allow us to express our creativity in more ways than ever. These ideas can be applied to live performances, to music for film or computer games.
Musicians who understand the creative process and how to work within technical boundaries are well-equipped to build careers in this exciting industry.
If you’re a performing musician, or a composer/producer, or both, with a basic understanding of technologies involved in the creative arts and a desire to develop your craft and expand your knowledge and practice into different areas of the audio sector, you’ll find this course rewarding.
