You’ll learn techniques that will prepare you for the world of electronic music production – a world that ranges across commercial and experimental music, from pop production through to electronic dance music, electronica, music for media and experimental music.
You’ll also explore the history of electronic music, from its early twentieth century pioneers through to krautrock, synthpop, industrial, techno and on to more recent trends in this diverse field of music making, identifying practices that you can incorporate into your own music.
Whether your interests lie in songwriting and music production emphasising electronic sound, creative experimental approaches, or exploring the genres and sub-genres of electronic dance music, this course will allow you to make the most of them. Over 3 years, you’ll study modules across four different strands, developing your knowledge and skills in production; performance; the contexts and histories of electronic music; and creative entrepreneurship for music.
You’ll also acquire electronic music production techniques using digital audio workstations (e.g. Logic X, Ableton Live and Pro Tools HD), and gain experience using a variety of analogue and digital technologies to produce your projects.
Our optional modules will allow you to broaden your experience by applying these skills to music for media projects (for example, in games, films and apps).
Throughout your studies, you’ll be supported by a teaching team with wide-ranging expertise in electronic music, popular music and creative music technology. You can also join our Electronic Music Society, which hosts weekly workshops and organises live performances and club nights.
We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects, internships or placements.
Our BA (Hons) Electronic Music will equip you primarily for a career as a producer-artist, but the wide-ranging skills you pick up will be transferable to any role involving the recording and production of music or sound.
You’ll develop skills suitable for a variety of roles in the music industries, working on your own music and for clients, creating music for media and performing. You will also gain experience that may lead into music promotion, working in label and live event management, sound editing and sound design.
