Music and Sound Design is the creation and manipulation of music and sound for film, games, television and diverse digital applications. The course is for aspiring sound designers, musicians and composers who wish to develop their sound and music production skills and apply them in a wide range of careers in the creative industries.
Sound designers, musicians and composers will develop specialisms which could include composition, production, sound engineering, songwriting and creating soundtracks for film, television and games.
The course is practically focused and will enable you to work creatively with sound and music in direct preparation for work in the creative industries. You will develop knowledge and the mindsets and skillsets to support your own creativity, including critical listening, editing, arranging, composing, producing, technical and storytelling skills. Students gain an understanding of how sound and music intersect with moving image (film, games and television) and are encouraged to apply the technical and creative aspects of sound and music production in a project-based learning environment. Collaboration is at the heart of the course and students will undertake project briefs with other students to realise projects as part of a team. Teaching staff and visiting professionals bring a strong industry perspective throughout the course.
