ELECTRONIC MUSIC PRODUCTION BACHELOR

The 3-years 1st Cycle Academic Degree in Electronic Music Production 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.
