Subject

Electronic music

Drawing from over 100 years’ worth of insights in applying electricity to music production, our BA (Hons) Electronic Music will
challenge your expectations of electronic music, allowing you to explore links and connections between different forms of
electronic music practice, and will give you the scope to experiment in creating your sound and musical identity.
You’ll learn techniques that will prepare you for the world of electronic music production - a world that ranges across commercial
and experimental music, from pop production through to electronic dance music, electronica, music for media and experimental
music.
You’ll also explore the history of electronic music, from its early twentieth century pioneers through to krautrock, synthpop,
industrial, techno and on to more recent trends in this diverse field of music making, identifying practices that you can
incorporate into your own music.
Whether your interests lie in songwriting and music production emphasising electronic sound, creative experimental
approaches, or exploring the genres and sub-genres of electronic dance music, this course will allow you to make the most of
them. Over 3 years, you’ll study modules across four different strands, developing your knowledge and skills in production;
performance; the contexts and histories of electronic music; and creative entrepreneurship for music.
You’ll also acquire electronic music production techniques using digital audio workstations (e.g. Logic X, Ableton Live and Pro
Tools HD), and gain experience using a variety of analogue and digital technologies to produce your projects.
Our optional modules will allow you to broaden your experience by applying these skills to music for media projects (for example,
in games, films and apps).
Throughout your studies, you’ll be supported by a teaching team with wide-ranging expertise in electronic music, popular music
and creative music technology. You can also join our Electronic Music Society, which hosts weekly workshops and organises live
performances and club nights.
