Sound (Production) MA
The MA Sound (Production) programme is tailored towards individuals who are keen to hone their composition and production skills inside an intertextual and cross-disciplinary framework that pushes at the stylistic boundaries of genre.
The programme encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative working methods with students from the wider music community at Bath Spa, as well as visual media and other departments within the University.
While the programme has a music production focus, it also covers key areas of practice such as:
- Sound design
- Electronic music composition
- Soundscape and field recording
- Traditional studio practices
- Sound engineering
- Spatial audio and sound design
- Composition for visual media.
You won’t be expected to cover all of these areas. You’ll be able to use the course to develop an individually-tailored portfolio of skills, experience, and top-level work across them.
The course is part of a suite of courses available across Music and Sound, operating alongside "sister" pathways in Sound (Design) and Sound (Arts), which allow further specialism in these areas.
Entry requirements for our postgraduate courses vary. We are generally looking for a good honours degree or equivalent. Some courses also require an interview or the submission of a portfolio of work.
