Key learning outcomes:

Students completing required courses for the Bachelor Degree of Electronic Music will have acquired the technical ability and specific competences that will allow them to fully express their interpretative personality. To meet this goal, students will closely study the historical, contemporary and electro‐acoustic musical repertoires and analytical methods, including the history of electro‐acoustic and computer technology applied to music. Aural training and memorization will assist students in attaining these goals, especially with regards to their own artistic production and repertoire of electro‐acoustic music. Upon completion of the Bachelor Degree, students will have attained in‐depth knowledge of the general stylistic, historical and aesthetic aspects related to their specific area. In addition, they will possess professional skills regarding the use of electro‐acoustic and computer instruments, as well as planning skills pertaining to installations dedicated to playing a specific repertoire. The ability to use a second European Union language will also be obtained.

Mode of study: Full-time / Part-time
