About Sound Practice and Composition at City, University of London

The MA develops skills in the broad field of contemporary sound practice, encompassing notated and digital music, sound art, improvisation, performance, sound studies, and interdisciplinary work. The course embraces contemporary sound in all its plurality and provides a critical context for exploring key topics and issues at the frontiers of its increasingly overlapping sub-disciplines.

Engagement with professional creative practice lies at the core of the course taught by world-leading composers and sound artists. Students workshop their music with professional ensembles in-residence EXAUDI Vocal Ensemble and Plus Minus Ensemble as well as international visitors, and present work to the public in the annual City Summer Sounds festival. The course complements our research centre SPARC (Sound Practice And Research @ City), which attracts visiting artists to work with students through workshops, lectures, masterclasses, an annual interdisciplinary symposium, and hosts our groundbreaking record label multi.modal distributed by NMC Recordings.
