You will engage with industry facing studio production themes which will include blending of musical sound into a deliverable format using studio technology and an introduction to post-production techniques for delivering sound for image. Whilst this unit will have a considerable focus on building creative and technical skills, these activities will be contextualized through the critical study on the context and practitioner case studies.

Contextualising Practice 2
Delivery of critical, historical and professional issues to enhance your development within practice-based clusters. Delivery to clusters of cognate practice areas. Content consists of selected thematic options in critical and historical areas plus cluster-wide professional and employability issues, facilitating and enhancing the development of both studio-based work and identity as a practitioner.
You will develop further practical and critical-reflective skills in composing, songwriting, arranging, and orchestrating music for visual media, including film, television, and interactive media. Thematic workshops could include: Songwriting for screen; Music improvisation for screen; Music for animation; Music arrangement for screen; Music for horror film; Music for gaming; Computer Music Composition for screen; Composing and Songwriting for drama.
You are introduced to historical and contemporary techniques for sound design across a range of media. Analysing seminal works from film, tv, game and radio provides a critical backdrop to the development of core techniques for acquiring and processing sound in support of linear narrative. This context is then broadened to include techniques and technologies for supporting non-linear narrative in game audio and interactive media.
This unit allows you to negotiate a pathway of study that supports your career aspirations. Using research informed strategies, you will further develop skills in one or more of the core themes of music composition, sound design or sound production within a context of professional development.
This unit explores collaborative and interdisciplinary art and design practice. You will have the opportunity to engage in a range of external-facing learning opportunities which will encourage collaborative, interdisciplinary practice and shared experience; this may take the form of spending time outside of the University and working within the creative community and the public domain.
