ELECTRONIC MUSIC

Three-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.

 

Main Subjects
  • 1) Live electronics practical test (see the program)
  • 2) Music Technology written and practical test (see the program)
  • 3) Music Theory knowledge test (see the program)

 

Subsidiary Subjects

  • 4) Sound Engineering written test (see the program) with compulsory questions with open answers, and 2 optional questions with open answers. Patch-bay projecting and test on mathematic behaviour of compressor or expander
  • 5) Acoustic Physics written test: calculation of the impedance module, nominal equivalent of a two doors passive net (resistances – coils – condensers) and obtainment of the strength absorbed by the circuit (RMS or maximum peak) when supplied by an alternate power supply.
  • 6) Oral test of Acoustic Physics
  • 7) Technical English knowledge test
  • 8) Interview and discussion with the Examination Board about all carried out tests and possible submission of previous works created by the candidate.
