Music Technology


Course overview

The BA (Hons) Creative Music Technology degree builds on many years of experience in electronic, electroacoustic and computer music at Anglia Ruskin. The focus is strictly musical, although the degree structure introduces you to a wide range of technological applications within computer music composition. A 'hands-on' approach is adopted at all times and a variety of creative outputs and performance opportunities are encouraged.

Your work will be carried out in the outstanding facilities available within our purpose-built music centre. As well as lecture rooms, practice rooms and a recital hall, we have an extensive suite of computer music studios, which include workstation laboratories, digital editing studios and recording facilities. Exposure to this state-of-the-art equipment will ensure you become familiar with the kind of technology currently used within the industry.

In recognition of the practical nature of the subject, Creative Music Technology is assessed mainly through coursework that is collected into portfolios. These portfolios include musical items or technological products as well as reflective and analytical writing on those items. Portfolios include compositions, software development, critical evaluations, reports and other musical items and technological products.

Musical concepts of sound creation, composition and performance are grasped through the realisation of tasks with clear, short-term objectives, which contribute to overall learning outcomes. In some instances, it is valuable for students to create some of the portfolio items under timed conditions to replicate the kinds of pressured working environments they may encounter upon entering the marketplace. Performance practice may also be part of the portfolio. This approach allows for the use of assessment methods where students' work is developed through feedback from course tutors and interaction with other students.
