The audio designer has profound technical knowledge and a high level of musical competence. Audio designers realise and interpret compositions (their own as well as the works of others) on electronic instruments, compose soundtracks for films, stage music, develop their own instrumental setups and playing interfaces and design interactive sound installations.

Hands-on training

This study programme is geared as closely as possible to practice and dovetails with the production and research activities of the Electronic Studio. From a very early stage, students are involved in the activities of the Electronic Studio and are also required to initiate and carry out their own projects.
