- Interactive music systems
- Audio-visual music
- Game-audio and VR-based electroacoustic music
- Arts-science and interdisciplnary electroacoustic music
You will be assigned a research panel consisting of your supervisor, a co-supervisor and advisor who will meet with you on a regular basis to monitor your progress.Electroacoustic postgraduate students are based in the NOVARS research centre and the associated electroacoustic music studios, and you will be expected to take part in the academic community of the department and the University by participating in seminars and presenting your research at regular intervals.
Workshops and performances of postgraduate compositions are arranged through the department. These will primarily be supported by student involvement with MANTIS (Manchester Theatre in Sound) and may also involve Psappha, the University's ensemble-in-association, and the Quatuor Danel, the quartet-in-residence, among other professional and student performers.
