Are you a professional performer looking to develop your own artistic expression in a performance setting?
The one-year program in Live Electronics is designed for performers who want to explore new possibilities in sound processing of their own instrument. Through teaching and mentoring by international leading artists and professionals, we seek to educate students that hold international standards relating both to the nature of their artistic project and the manner of which this is conveyed in a concert setting. Workshops are a central part of the program and introduce you to various aesthetic and creative possibilities.
We offer industry standard facilities for both performance and production, all through an innovative pedagogical framework. Live Electronics is relevant for both musicians trained with a main instrument as well as ‘laptop’ musicians that rely solely on electronic interfaces to make and perform their music. We also welcome composers, songwriters and producers that seek to develop and perform their artistic project in a concert setting.
The one-year program in Live Electronics gives you necessary skills for choosing professions with various tasks related to the performance, production, and dissemination of music.
