The Course

The course provides students with the opportunity to familiarise themselves with, and take full advantage, of two leading European institutions hosting production and research in the field of new technologies applied to music.

The innovative teaching program comprises: lectures by international artists and experts; thematic seminars; intensive hands-on workshops on software for studio work and composition (recording, sample editing and sequencing, real-time sound processing, sound spatialization, computer-assisted composition); master classes; video-conferences and production of the student's own creative project.

The applicants will choose between two pedagogical and geographical offers.

Each Teaching Track is based on the complementary know-how developed by the six European partners and includes concrete exchanges and the development of mutual knowledge via thematic seminars, lectures, and master classes with the teaching staffs of the different partner institutions and numerous invited artists and guest professors.
