4.58.17 Concentration in Sonic Arts for Music Majors

The Concentration in Sonic Arts is for BMus and BA (Music) students who have an interest in electroacoustic music, soundscape composition, computer music, multi-channel sound spatialization, interactive music involving instruments with computer, and sound design for video, film, media arts and stage production.

Students can acquire a Concentration in Sonic Arts by successfully completing 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) including:

  1. 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents) Music 351, 355, 451, 453, 551

  2. 3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) from Music 533*, 511*, Fine Arts 503*, 507.

*With approval of the Division Chair, Music.

Of the six courses listed above, at least five are studio-based. As such, students who complete the concentration will be well-prepared for advanced work or the job market, particularly in the arts, multimedia and creative industries, including sound recording, sound design for games, installations, media production, podcasts, etc. While encompassing different approaches and techniques to working with sound and audio (soundscape studies, concert and field recording, electroacoustic music, interactive computer applications networked music performance, etc.), the concentration forms a cohesive suite of courses to give a well-rounded presentation to the students.

Anyone interested in pursuing the Concentration in Sonic Arts should consult with an Arts Advisor early in their planning process since not all courses are offered every year.
