This new programme (which replaces the Production pathway of the Music MA) provides practical, theoretical and analytical study of the creation, perception and reception of audio productions. An interdisciplinary approach is adopted which examines how creative studio practice is informed by perspectives provided by science and engineering (acoustics, psychoacoustics, electroacoustics, signal processing) as well as composition, performance and musicology. Professional competences in various aspects of sound recording practice are developed and assessed, along with the underlying transferable knowledge. This is in addition to a cultural and historical perspective which encourages the understanding of production, with its own notions of style and genre, as an evolving and integral part of music making.

Entry Requirements

Please provide a short portfolio of extracts (no longer than 5 minutes) of your previous work in music production. You can attach an mp3 (or AAC, AAC+ etc.) file along with your application on the online system (below, you may be asked to provide a link to a higher resolution version prior to interview). Please also provide a short written statement (maximum 500 words) describing the portfolio items and how they were produced.
If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to. For more information, see:
