Course summary

Our Music and Sound Recording course offers students a bespoke training in music production methods. It is aimed at students who seek employment in media-related industries, small businesses, or as independent artists. The course covers a range of production situations aligned to music from classical, non-western and popular music genres. You will encounter production strategies from a wide variety of perspectives during your time on the course. Course content: Relevant aspects of acoustics, psychoacoustics and electroacoustics, combined with practical experience of microphone techniques and editing methods for classical recording, introduce you to the behaviour of sound, our perception of it and the aesthetic and technical issues that must be addressed to capture it successfully and meaningfully. The more overtly interventionist techniques that typify pop, rock and electronic music production are explored in detail covering: signal processing techniques and technologies.
