The 3-years 1st Cycle Academic Degree in Electronic Music grants the student cultural and technical specific skills enabling him/her to translate into practice his/her own artistic ideas or someone else’s ones. Bearing this target in mind, a special focus is set on the study of electro-acoustic music repertoire, both historical and contemporary, as well as on the in-depth study of analytic methodologies, including the history of electro-acoustic and data technologies in appliance to music. Such targets will also have to be reached enhancing the development of the earing perceptive and the memorization skills, especially as far as sound materials of the electro-acoustic music repertoire are concerned. At the end of the three-year Course,the students will have deep knowledge of stylistic, historic and aesthetic sides of electronic music. Besides, each student will have the appropriate skills relative to the implementation of data and electro-acoustic instrumentations.

The admissions tests for International Students are held in Mid July and Early September every year. The precise dates will be communicated once the interested students apply for the Courses and , in the case of the Pop and Jazz Course, pass the pre-selection phase. The APPLICATION PERIOD runs from January 8th to April 30th every year. Therefore the Deadline to send the Application Form and the pre-selection video is April 30th. Late applications will be singularly considered, at the Direction’s discretion, on the basis of possible available places and/or renounces.
