Modules: Exploration You will begin with an exploration of the theoretical concepts of innovation, examining studies of multi-disciplinary collaborations where innovation has been implemented to generate new ideas and solutions to problems. This will introduce you to a range of theoretical and creative applications that will help form your future work. Practice In this module we encourage you to be bold and to try new things through practical investigation and experimentation; and push you to further develop your own ‘voice’ in the area of music production. You will demonstrate a strategic and creative approach to problem solving, while embracing experimentation and iterative processes to refine your innovative ideas.
