Music Technology major or minor

With a strong emphasis on research-led teaching, the Music Technology Major qualifies students with diverse theoretical and practical skill sets of professional-level music recording, as applied to recording studio practice, field recording and online music production. Drawing upon cutting-edge, 21st Century scholarship in digital music, as well as wider theoretical debates in the digital humanities, the Music Technology Major examines the impact of multimedia, interdisciplinary art forms and communications technologies on music that have arisen from the digital revolution.

Students will have the opportunity to pursue studies in: music technology history and praxis; sound archiving; cyberculture; music business; the art and science of sound recording; examples of digital music performance, composition and production; critical theory of technology; and, music technology and its relationship to the wider digital humanities.

Additionally, students may choose to customize their Music Technology Major by participating in the Australian National Internships Program and/ or developing their own focused music technology project.
