Program description

Creative Music Technology (MMusTech, BA)

The course gives students the opportunity to compose, create and collaborate in a wide range of media applications. Students will engage in studio composition, sound design and production for TV and Film, animation, computer games audio design, music video, broadcast, performance and sound engineering.

The department is a pioneer in innovative teaching and learning practice. We operate the “connected campus studios” where students and staff can collaborate, record and perform High Definition audio exchange between studios, at home or on campus, in real-time through a combination of remote login and cloud-based audio-packet streaming.

In this way, students have access to specialist facilities to record performers, artists and musicians in-house, or remotely from any studio in the world.

Graduates from the programme are well prepared for all aspects of this massive subject, and as a result, are highly employable across the Digital Media and Creative Industries sector. The department is lucky to have the Swansea Laptop Orchestra in residence at the studios.

The entertainment industry and, in particular, recorded and broadcast media, has grown dramatically in recent years. The industry employs a large number of people distributed across a range of different activities.

Currently, there are approximately three hundred recording companies active in the UK, ranging from small, specialist labels to large multi-national companies. Several thousand recording studios exist, along with thousands more live performance venues, sound equipment hire companies and musical equipment manufacturers. Added to this are television and radio production companies, computer games designers, internet content providers, to name but a few, all of whom have a requirement for music technology skills.

In the last few years, the explosion in the sales of multimedia home computers and surround sound cinema systems has also resulted in opportunities in the areas involving surround sound systems and related audio technology.
