About this minor

Digital music practice is becoming increasingly widespread as a distinctive and important form of music practice, particularly in the creative and interdisciplinary fields. It is found everywhere in creative music areas, including contemporary music practices (recording, sound engineering, film and TV composition, mixed media performance, online music delivery, sound installations) and cross-disciplinary practices such as sonification and music and health.

The Digital Music minor is suited to creatives who want to write and produce music with computers and other electronic devices. It takes full advantage of the Conservatorium’s multifaceted art music perspectives and its unique take on the 21st-century music industry.
